Photo 1 of 12, Discarded but Found

A mysterious image for you. This is one of a couple of lantern slides, meant, probably during the first half of the previous century, to be projected using a magic lantern. Now discarded but found in Kampala by the HIPUganda rescue team…

Why would you throw away an object like this? Its size is modest ca. 10x10x0,1cm. Quite hard to be in someone’s way you’d think.

And also, what animals are these? First intuitive hunch from a city girl was bevers, but they seem to be on the big side and high on their legs for that.

It does look like the images on the slides were made in Uganda… But there are not many clues to them. More to follow. Think along with us!

They look a bit like capibara. Same group of animals perhaps?
