Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood, also known as "Little Red Cap" or simply "Red Riding Hood" is probably the most famous fairy tale. Here is a beautiful version on three magic lantern slides (hand-painted, wood framed, XIX century).

Each slide is cm. 33x9.


In this version of Little Red Cap the protagonist turns out to be a sharp businesswoman: she likes better to sell the wolf to a circus rather than let it to be killed. (magic lantern slides).
