    No it is a device for projecting photos from set cards.

    Night-Gaunt — a carousel slide projector.


    SimpsonFan was making a joke…. a slide show is like primitive Powerpoint.

    I’m surprised Gene didn’t recognise the old projector, if they took slides when he was younger.

    It turns out this is a major problem for The Smithsonian, and The Chicago Museum of Technology, and other savers of history. You can’t just save an LP record, you have to save all the related technology that allows you to play it. Now, you don’t have to go all the way and wrap a Mustang around an 8 Track, (Although that would be cool and would be worth a lot of style points…), but you get the idea. Want a job? Learn how to keep Beta players running for The Smithsonian…..

    He’s probably never seen a 16 mm. home movie projector either.

    This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It let’s us travel the way a child travels – around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.

    I love the fact that A&J is not static in time like many other strips. Good to grow older with a comic.

    “27 years in school” You want reality, please don’t read comic strips. Compared to Little Orphan Annie and Dondi, this strip is flyin’ by. Yes, I’m thrilled it’s not static. And especiallly that little touches like a carousel projector are significant.

    When the bulb burns out, it’ll be a boat anchor.

    I have one of those high intensity bulbs, maybe I should put it on eBay!

    It’s a segue to old strips.
