Esplanade des Invalides (1900)

*** (out of 4)

Edison short takes us to Paris, France where we see the famous Esplanade des Invalides. The camera pans around all sides of the lawn area before giving us a view from the top of a building overlooking the entire place. It goes without saying that this place has had more documentaries with better footage since 1900 but this here is one of the few ways to see how everything actually was in 1900. That reason alone makes this worth sitting through as we get to view not only the buildings but get to see several people and the clothing that was worn back in the day. We can also see the tomb of Napoleon in the background before seeing the bridge of Alexander III.
