A page from the Manchester High School for Girls School Magazine from May 1920, reporting on a lecture given by Reginald James to the school's Scientific Society on "Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition", illustrated with lantern slides. The magazine reported "a record attendance of 200".
A selection of James’s slides used during his talks in Manchester, including slides with his own illustrations (as shown in image S0026403, above), were displayed in the Special Collections Exhibition during the tour of the Enduring Eye Exhibition at Manchester Central Library, 9 April to 11 June 2016. The slides were kindly donated to the Collections of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) by his family in 2015.
