A period piece
31 August 2000 | by James L.See all my reviews

Curio period piece, by Edison. That said , it is basically footage of bathers going down an early water slide ( a 50 foot one , in San Fransisco). For anyone who's interested in obscure San Fransisco history , Thomas Edison, turn-of -the century swimming practice and wear, or the early waterslide. Hard to find .
