Panoramic View of Electric Tower From a Balloon

Instead it is an up and down or elevation of the camera on the then-famous Electric Tower built for the Exposition at Buffalo, New York.; From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE ELECTRIC TOWER FROM A BALLOON. Here we have recorded a very novel scene, the camera having been placed in the basket of the captive balloon at the Pan-American Exposition.
