Megalethoscope slide of the Palais et place d’armes, Versailles, 1870s by Carlo Ponti

Toronto.  We have featured essays from the”Fans in a Flashbulb” site from time to time. This essay is entitled, “A Time Travelling Magical Megalethoscope View of the Palace of Versailles” and was published at the end of last month.

If like me, you have never heard of the “Megalethoscope“, click the above link and read the essay by Christopher George. A thank you and tip of the hat goes to our friend and fellow PHSC member, George Dunbar, for pointing out this unusual essay on a Victorian viewer and process invented in 1860 by Carlo Ponti.
