In this brief snippet, Edison’s cameras go right into the heart of the bustle of turn of the century New York. This one seems of more cultural and historical importance than some of the other “real world” films we’ve seen. Capturing the details of how people dressed and travelled in a New York very different from what we think of today is . . . kind of compelling and this is probably the best of the “time capsule” Edison shorts. 0 stars.
tl;dr – 0 stars.
