À bord du 'Formidable': Ramassage du linge (1898)

The title of this Lumiere film roughly translates to "Pick Up Machine" and we see a machine that is raising and lowering some clothing. If you're a fan of these actuality movies then this one here will give you plenty to look at as this creation is quite interesting to say the least. If you enjoy watching these type of movies then you'll love seeing this machinery in action because it makes for a great visual and you can't help but feel as if you're watching some heavily produced musical from the 1930s.

This film and others from the Lumiere Brothers can be seen online at various sites including YouTube.
