Archive of the Month - December 2014 For December, we continue our commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War by presenting the complete collection of lantern slides relating to “The Great European War” and related items from the earlier Boer War which originated (before their transfer to the RCB Library) in St Patrick’s Cathedral Deanery in Dublin, and were used to inform contemporary audiences about these conflicts.
