Pose Slides (Joel E. Rubin Collection)

Permanent URI for this community

Pose slides were used to create a type of tableau vivant ("living picture") performance that was popular in vaudeville at the beginning of the twentieth century. An actress dressed all in white posed against a white background. Then, when a slide was projected onto her, it appeared as if she was in a costume or in a unique environment.
