What's a Kodascope?

While doing some research into one of my Australia Baptist missionary relatives, the Rev. Hedley J. Sutton of Melbourne, I came across an article in a 1928 edition of the Launceston Examiner in Tasmania. It referred to a lecture being carried out with the aid of a Kodascope "a moving picture machine which is all the vogue in depicting missionary work in India".

I have to confess that I had never heard of a Kodascope -- not least, perhaps, because it was in use long before I was born. I was curious to learn more and came up with this fascinating photograph and description: http://bit.ly/1aJt56E
