The collection I have is owned by a woman in her late 70s. Her husband's grand-father was a photographer and most of the magic lantern slides are of the family and taken by him. I started with these ones which were obviously souvenir ones as they caught my eye. I will get on and do the family portrait ones soon. I have no idea how this one of Spain ended up in his collection or indeed the ones of Cornwall though the family did have connections with Devon. The point is that these must have been mass-produced. The caption on mine saying 'Barcelona' was most likely written by the English collector who was perhaps just choosing a Spanish location at random. Who knows. I think that it is Cordoba but you would have thought that a museum ( in Almeria) would be a trustworthy source. In any case it is a great photo by important photographers.
