Panorama of Esplanade by Night

Thomas A. Edison, Inc
Format
Film; Computer Resource; Video; Online Video; Online
Summary
The first objects visible in this film, which was taken at night, are the glowing light globes that outline the buildings closest to the camera position. The camera slowly pans, encompassing the complete area of the exhibit buildings, and the outlines of all the buildings are clearly discernible. Edwin S. Porter maintained that this was the first motion picture taken at night by incandescent light in America.
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE ESPLANADE BY NIGHT. A most perfect picture of the Pan-American Exposition buildings, including the Electric Tower and Temple of Music, as they appear at night.
