This is the type of lantern slide which would have been used as advertising in the year silent movie theaters. The slide is glass, with a white border, bound in black, paper tape, professional made by M. S. Stewart Co. Oakland, California. A gold colored star is printed in the lower proper right corner, so the slide would be inserted in the projector properly. The background is black, the lettering in blue and red: "A Small Deposit will reservee any article in our entire stock of Diamonds. California Loan Office, California's Largest Pawnbrokers, 835 Broadway- S.W. Cor. 9th St." Illustration of a man (seated and wearing smoking jacket) and a woman, with her arm around him (wearing a white dress, trimmed in red, red band in her hair) are looking at jewerly items, perhaps gifts they have given to each other (?) since there are some holly leaves and berries near him. "Stewart slide" appears on the slide at the lower proper right corner.
