This early Edison short is a picture of a ship sitting at a dock. While it is identified as a ship being loaded for the Klondike, there is nothing particular to indicate it is shot in Seattle and heading for the Klondike. It could just as well be in Hoboken, headed for Secausus. There is no motion, except for a horse-drawn jitney that pulls into the frame at the last minute. I couldn't tell what hotel it was from, but in 1897 I expect the name written on the carriage was clear to the audience. Product Placement?
