Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

To open up the Museum of Health Care’s artefact collection we are participating in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. Based on WordPress’ randomly chosen themes, we’ll offer a serendipitous peek into our collection. Check in each week for a new curiosity.

Dr. C.H. William’s lantern. Accession #1969.311.1 a-b

The front of this lantern holder has 18 small circular windows with different coloured glass in each window; the disk containing these windows is movable in both counterclockwise and clockwise directions. The stamped metal plate afixed near the top reads “DR. C.H. WILLIAMS // LANTERN // FOR TESTING COLOUR SENSE”
