• 1899 Edison? - "New Brooklyn to New York via Brooklyn Bridge #1"?

    It did not take long before early cameramen discovered the added value of the moving camera by putting their machines on boats and trains. This film must be one of the greatest examples with its mesmerizing, almost hypnotic "tunnel" part. Much later dollies would be specifically made to move cameras around. The effect was popularized by the 1914 italian movie "Cabiria"; for years it was referred to as a "Cabiria" movement by filmmakers. A very similar film is available entitled "New Brooklyn to New York via Brooklyn Bridge #2", dated 22-09-1899. This could very well be version #1. Or is this in the other direction?
