Neuville-sur-Saône: Débarquement du congrès des photographes à Lyon (1895)

The title of this Lumiere Brothers film pretty much tells you what you're looking at. We see a group of people walking off a riverboat and coming close to the camera who catches their every move. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking about this early "actuality" movie but if you're a fan of these then you're bound to enjoy this one. I always enjoy watching these because it gives you a great chance to see how things were so many years ago. This one here features a lot of people so you get a terrific idea of the type of clothing that was worn during this period as well as a chance to see the various other things going on. This here is well worth watching if you enjoy these movies.
