Bausch & Lomb Optical Company Double Dissolving Model C Balopticon with Moving Picture Attachment Figure 10 — Double Dissolving Model C Balopticon with Power’s No. 6a Mechanism This is an ideal outfit for Y. M. C. A., church, school or college auditoriums, affording unusually attractive possibilities for entertainment and educational purposes. It permits one to combine regular dissolving views in lecture work with moving pictures in a very pleasing manner, since it provides for instant interchange betv een the two.

The two Balopticons are securely mounted on a substantial baseboard in the manner illustrated above. The lamp house of the lower Balopticon is mounted in connection with the moving picture mechanism.
