The End of an American Icon: Coney Island at Night

The End of an American Icon: Coney Island at Night

This classic Edison short, featuring revolutionary night photography of Coney Island around the turn of the century, was shot by the Edison Studio filmmaker Edwin S. Porter on June 25th, 1905. His camera caressed the lit-up amusement center with long sweeping movements, producing an eerie beauty. The smooth pans and tilts were a remarkable technical accomplishment at the time, given the fact that night scenes required longer exposures.
