The prompts that accompanied these magic lantern slides borrow heavily from Lewis Carroll’s text, just as the slides closely echo Tenniel’s original designs
The King turned to the Jury: “Consider your verdict,” he said. “No, No!” said the Queen, “sentence first,
verdict afterwards.” “Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “Off with her head!” shouted the Queen.
“Who cares for you, said Alice, you’re nothing but a pack of cards!” … And then the whole pack rose up
into the air, and came flying down upon her. She gave a little scream and tried to beat them off, and
then found herself lying on the bank with her head in her sister’s lap, whilst some dead leaves fluttered
down from the trees upon her face. “Oh, I’ve had such a curious dream!” said Alice, and she told her
sister of her strange adventures in Wonderland.
