Storyline

"Taken from the front platform of a special train run backward over this celebrated S curve. Not only are the passing trains and crowded platforms of great interest, but the view of uptown New York is an excellent one, showing acre upon acre of roofs, towers, steeples and towering apartment houses. As the 'special' slows up at 92nd street, a Harlem express dashes by, the engineer leaning out of his cab, and waving a good-bye." Written by Edison Catalog

104th Street Curve, New York, Elevated Railway (1899)

*** (out of 4)

Early film from Edison is yet another look at a train. When 1896's ARRIVAL OF A MAIL TRAIN was released and became a hit, it seemed like every studio was coming up with their own pictures about trains or taking place on a train. This one here, as the title pretty much says, goes through Harlem around a (then) famous "S" curve. We see this "S" curse through a few different points of view including one time with the camera stationed on a platform and another with the camera on the moving train. We get about five different views of this, which isn't all that interesting but the fun thing was seeing some people, how they were dressed and a look at various buildings from back in the day.
