Storyline

Georgetown is a silver-mining town at 8,500 feet near the crest of the Rockies. Hooked somehow to the rear of a four-car passenger train is a camera that pans the scenery and, when the train goes around curves, looks ahead to see the engine and passenger cars: the passengers wave hundreds of white handkerchiefs out of the train's left-side windows for the benefit of the camera. The town comes into view; the tracks are above the town, so the camera looks down on dozens of modest rooftops as it pans the area. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Interesting Feature With Some Nice Scenery
24 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

The Georgetown Loop in Colorado was apparently a favored site for some of cinema's early pioneers, and you can see why - the scenery is both interesting and attractive. This 1903 feature does a good job both in picking up a lot of sights worth seeing, and in conveying the motion of the train that is carrying the camera.

The main point of the feature is just the scenery, but some of the vistas that come into view could hardly have been better chosen if they had been carefully set up as still photos. There are also a couple of amusing shots when the train rounds a bend, and some of the cars come into the camera's field of view. While it's certainly nothing spectacular, it's a pleasant feature, and a worthwhile look at some sights from over 100 years ago.
