Revolving Picture Books

In a recent trip to Mum and Dad's, Mum had put aside some of the old books I owned when I was about 3. I had forgotten all about some of them. In the pile of books I found 'Revolving Pictures' and 'Magic Window's' by Ernest Nister.
The pictures in these books were antique, and they had been set in a paper window with a pull/slide tab. If you pulled the tab, the image would slide away to reveal another picture. I do remember pulling these tabs with a little too much excitement when I was little. Several of the tabs had snapped. I still really like this paper mechanism.
