Edison Short

Fisherman's Wharf (1897)

If you're looking for "entertainment" like the type of entertainment you get from movies of today then you're going to be disappointed with this early Edison film. If you're a fan of early cinema then you'll be more forgiving of the lack of story in this 25-second film. The wharf at San Fran is shown as a large fisher boat anchors and we see the crew doing a few brief things like mending nets. That's pretty much all that happens here so, again, there's no real entertainment story wise but it's always fun seeing this moments of history captured on film for people to watch over a hundred years later. I'm always curious what this people in 1897 would think if they knew film buffs were watching them in the year 2010 and beyond.
