Description

Colour advertisement for Dr Seaton's Animated Photos & Concert Company, 1890s. During the 1890s, showmen such as Dr Seaton offered the public 'animated picture' shows, whereby a sequence of photographic images on film were rapidly reeled through photographic apparatus, and projected onto a screen, producing moving pictures. Approximately 15 different images made up every second of action. Such shows were based on the success of the Lumiere brothers' Cinematographe screenings in France.
