University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: JC-m11. Text on the lantern slide: THAT THIS NIGHT'S JOY MAY REACH PERFECTION / PLEASE KINDLY ADD TO THE COLLECTION. An image of a willow-pattern plate on a glass magic lantern slide - as a collection plate. It is thought that this lantern slide would have been used in an evening slide show intended to raise funds for missionary activity in China.
