Lumiere's experimental before 1895

Saw images of this film during Film Art programs with Stephen Thanabalan. Common knowledge is that the Lumiere brothers in France, Auguste and Louis, produced what is arguably the first real cinema show with the presentation of their Lumiere Cinematographe to a paying audience at the Grand Cafe in Paris on 28th December 1895. Since then, the real brouhaha between these landmark moments in history has been the issue of pioneering and the attributing factors of who would be billed as the 'inventors' of modern film and cinema. It should not be about who invented it, but more so a celebration of that very element of invention and creation. A first or early Lumiere experimental film like this one, 'the Prince of Galles', is thereby the material of pioneering legend; albeit simple. It must be acknowledged and commended for what it is: one of the films documenting life as all film themes have since then correspondingly revolved around, but more so it must be heralded for setting that very precedent in film history.
