A Peak Into Yesteryear

Some delightful footage of Coney Island in 1903 and 1904 was posted today on Motion Abbey. Though it was posted sometime ago on this blog, it was good to re-post it.

The silent footage is a compilation of short films shot by the American Mutoscope & Biograph Company and Thomas A. Edison Inc., including 'Children in the Surf', and 'Shooting The Chutes, Luna Park.' This is an amazing peak into the Coney Island of a century ago, and anybody with any interest in Coney Island history should check it out immediately
