All Prayer Foundlings Home, Louisville

Blogging for the Filson Historical Society about a new (old) collection of glass lantern slides. The images of adorable infants, hymn lyrics and bible illustrations appear to have been used in presentations about the orphanage to church groups throughout Kentucky and Indiana. My favorite slide shows an officer loading a young man in the paddy wagon while his wife and children — and the saloon keeper — look on. It’s titled Where is My Wand’ring Boy Tonight!

Magic lantern slides reveal Louisville history
