The Management Wishes You a Merry Christmas

Theater Christmas slide (c. 1910-30)
Product advertising and coming attraction promotion were not the only reasons that theater operators used lantern slides.  In this exceptionally topical example an exhibitor wishes their patrons a Merry Christmas.

...and now, almost a century later, I'll take advantage of this opportunity to do the same.

Happy Holidays from STARTS THURSDAY!
