With Flatters' interest and skill in developing lantern and microscope slides they sold the chemists in 1906, and the business was moved to Dover St. to focus on hiring and selling large numbers of lantern slides on all aspects of natural history. In 1913 the company moved to even larger premises at 309 Oxford Road, opposite the University.
