A series of spinning perforated disks, lit from behind, illustrated the strobe effect. Here the camera shutter stopped the motion with just a hint of ghosting.

An exhibit of artificial lightning was demonstrated on stage using two tesla coils. The hall was so dark and crowded it was impossible to get anywhere near the stage.

A nickelodeon was an early form of jukebox. Usually, a nickel was dropped into a slot, causing a motor to start which powered actual instruments to play. Here the instruments were suspended upside down from the ceiling.
