Magic Lantern Slide: Paris. A Street News Kiosk

This image shows a news kiosk in Paris. It was produced by William Weaver Baker who mainly produced magic lantern slides of buildings and historic objects in Exeter. This slide is part of a series using photographs taken in Paris, likley to date from around 1900 when the Exposition Universelle was occurring. There was an increased interest in newspapers in the years leading up to 1900. This slide shows six people, both men and women, browsing the newspaper kiosk. On the street behind there are multiple horse and carts.
