The magic-Lantern was invented in Europe in the 17th century. By the end of the 18th, it was being used to entertain audiences in the United States. During the second half of the 19th century it was a very popular form of mass entertainment, until motion pictures replaced it early in the 20th. Oxygen and hydrogen were burned on a limestone surface to produce limelight, which was projected through colored scenes hand-painted on glass slides, resulting in brilliant images that could be shown to up to hundreds of people at a time.
