External magazine for printing 35mm film for Lumiere Cinematographe, serial number 271, by Jules Carpentier, 1896. This would contain one roll of 35mm negative and one roll of 35mm raw stock which would be run through the camera in contact with each other for printing.

The Cinematographe, invented by Auguste (1862-1954) and Louis (1864-1948) Lumiere, was a combined camera, projector and printer. The film ran from the top spool holder through the projector to a box in the stand below. With a similar Cinematographe, the Lumiere brothers gave the first cinema show at the Grand Cafe on the Boulevard des Capucines in Paris, France, on 28 December 1895.
