Move On (1903)

*** (out of 4)

Nice film from Edison was shot in New York's Lower East Side as we see several street merchants selling fruits and various other items. Everything is pretty uneventful until a cop shows up demanding one vendor to leave. At just under two-minutes there's certainly nothing here that's going to entertain modern viewers but I think film and history buffs should at least be entertained by what's here. As is the case with most of these old movies, they're mainly going to appeal to those who enjoy seeing how things looked back in 1903. I found the scenery to be quite beautiful in its own way and it's certainly fascinating seeing how these street market was worked. We get to see several people as they go about their day and there's also a good look at some old automobiles as well as several type of street carts. I'm not sure if the cop sequence was staged or not but if not then things certainly have changed in the past one-hundred years.
