There was an enormous public interest in any images relating to conflict. The Anglo-Boer war was one such topic that was a popular entertainment theme. This is confirmed by the quantity of war news and images produced. The relation between the lantern shows and paper based illustrated news were closely aligned in that the slide images were sourced from British illustrated news publications such as The Sphere and The Graphic and integrated into these lantern performances. http://www.theheritageportal.co.za/article/latent-south-african-visual-history-magic-lantern-slides
