Description: Artist: ANONYMOUS Size: 17 1/2 x 23 5/8 in./44.5 x 60 cm Starting in 1895, American audiences began clamoring for the cutting-edge technology that would become the moving picture.

Here, Edison's machine is highlighted, putting an emphasis on the creator of the marvel over the plot or theme of what would be shown. (film)
