Turn of the century moving pictures

Posted by Jen on Wednesday, 18 July, 2007

The Library of Congress website has a cornucopia of turn of the century moving pictures, all available to download. I took the liberty of uploading a bunch to YouTube. Here are a few of them (all except the last are without sound).

Japanese acrobats from 1904:

Pillow fight from 1897:

Trapeze disrobing act from 1901 (LOVE this one):

And an early experiment with animation from 1900: (this has music over top)
