These were large and intricate boxes that had changeable views at the pull of a string. {1700’s) Improvements in printing were made, and smaller home versions of the peep shows were created. Panels in these home versions were designed to fit into slots and were not permanently attached. {1800’s) Concertina hinges were used, and panels were permanently attached to these hinges.
