Als die Bilder laufen lernten 1

Thomas Alva Edison, 1903: Skyscrapers of New York City, from the North River, 3.25 min

Description: "A Beautiful panoramic view of lower New York from Barclay Street to Battery Park, showing a beautiful stereoscopic effect of the sky-scrapers in the business section of the city. Old Castle Garden, at which place hundreds of thousands of emigrants have landed from time to time, but now used as an Aquarium, is also seen in the picture. One of the finest panoramic pictures of New York ever taken."
