Castleton Lanterns

Castleton Lanterns

A Great War project aiming to match Lantern Slide images to the men of Castleton Church, Belfast who served in the Great War.

The Lantern slides were found in the organ loft of Alexandra Presbyterian Church, Belfast. There are 77 lantern slides in total which were made by famous photographer Mr Alex. R. Hogg.

The committee minutes of Castleton Church state that in 1918 Alex. R. Hogg was asked to put together a lantern slide exhibition 'of our men at the front' which was to be shown on 16th December 1918. Tickets were sent to the families of serving men.
