    I got this Magic Lantern as well as a collection of slides from my great granduncle who was a photography amateur in Mexico. They did magic lantern shows with other friends and I inherited this and other beautiful cameras and slides.

    J.H. Steward Ltd was established in London, England in 1856. J.H. Steward was the head optician of the company and had businesses at 406 and 66 Strand and 54 Cornhill in London. In the mid 1800s he became the optician to Her Majesty's Government and the National Rifle, and National Artillery Associations.

    J. H. Steward, London; mahogany lamphouse with label J. H. STEWARD, 406 STRAND, LONDON, side-opening door, side-mounted hinged ventilators, a three-wick patent refulgent lamp with chimney, condensing lens, black-painted metal lens mount and a lacquered-brass bound rack and pinion focusing lens

      How lucky are you! Treasure it as they seem to be a rarity here in Australia.
