Snipes on flickr

We’ve put images of our entire collection of lantern-slide snipes on flickr. They were collected by Major Matthews, the first City Archivist.

“The rebel maid” Montague F. Phillips will be presented by The Vancouver Opera Society under the direction of Jas. C. Welch, 1923, Reference code AM54-S4-: CVA 371-2806

“Snipes” refers to anything, other than trailers or features, shown in a movie theatre. Digitized versions of these glass snipes were shown before the program at our recent Vintage Vancouver screening at the Vancity Theatre.

We are conforming to all the laws and therefore should be patronized, ~1920, Reference code AM54-S4-: CVA 371-2793

Please take a look and feel free to use them in your own shows.
