Century-old Signs Remind Moviegoers to be Polite

The image above is an example of what was shown to the audience during the changing of film reels in the days of silent pictures, circa 1910. Called lantern slides, these gentle reminders of movie audience etiquette were made of glass. A collection of these images is available in the book Silent Movies: The Birth of Film and the Triumph of Movie Culture.

See more lantern slides from a century ago here.
