RCB Library lantern slides: Irish International Exhibition 1907

The Representative Church Body Library – which serves as the Church of Ireland’s central archive repository – holds a large collection of lantern slides from the late 19th and early 20th centuries which have been donated for safe keeping. Many have been digitized to protect their quality and can be viewed in our online photo gallery.

Throughout this week, we have been highlighting five themes from our collections. Today, we finish at the Irish International Exhibition in Dublin in 1907. To view more slides, just click here to navigate the gallery. The albums are broadly in chronological order and the lantern slides can be found by scrolling down the page.
