The Photo-Drama of Creation (1914) Poster

Trivia

At least 20 four-part sets were prepared, making it possible for a part of the "Photo-Drama" to be shown in 80 different cities each day. It was a real challenge to fill those 80 engagements. Train schedules were not always convenient. Congregations could not always rent exhibition locations on the desired dates. Yet, by the end of 1914, the "Photo-Drama" had been presented to audiences totaling over 9,000,000 in North America, Europe, and Australia.

This presentation combined motion pictures and a slideshow, synchronized with sound (the first time such synchronization had been achieved). It took the audience from the time of Creation to the end of the Millennium.
