Brittingham Family Lantern Slide Collection

Travelling Priest in Kyoto Travelling Priest in Kyoto (1898, Kyoto, Japan, Glass lantern slide). From the Brittingham Family Lantern Slide Collection. "...This collection consists of the personal and travel photographs of the Brittinghams, a prominent and influential Wisconsin family. Spanning the years 1897-1922, these images capture the private lives of a wealthy family at the turn of the century, and document their travels to 22 states and 32 countries. The subjects of this collection range widely from informal pictures of children at play to detailed interior shots of the Brittingham homes. Scenic landscapes, cityscapes, and street scenes from around the world are in abundance. The Brittinghams traveled from the Grand Canyon to Eastern Asia, and everywhere captured particulars of dress, architecture, and locomotion."
