This set of slides was used in the Faust Theater in New Richland, Minnesota, as part of the entertainment from 1914 through the 1940s. The slide show includes images of local businesses, children, and advertising, as well as national advertising. About 600 glass slides were found many years after the theater was closed. Of those, approximately half were obliterated. Many of the glass slides show water damage sustained during their years stored in the rear of Faust Theater. Of those that survived the years, fewer than 300 were in good enough condition to identify the subject matter, and those that were are included in this collection. Together they give a portrait of New Richland and the surrounding area and a sense of what it was like to go to a movie in the first half of the Twentieth Century.
