- [between 1890-1910]
Lantern slide, glass slide. Handpainted over B&W image. No wood frame. Black frame with gold letters "Edward Van Altena 71-79W. 45th St., N.Y.C." Slide is numbered 5. Perhaps the fifth one in a series, because the man in the slide is the same man from 2008.001.1303. Image of two men talking by a gate, at what looks to be a ranch. The one man is the dressed in a black suit, holding a briefcase or suitcase, perhaps a doctor. The second man is holding a cowboy hat, and has a beard. The image is handpainted over a B&W slide.
