Historic footage of the Manhattan waterfront shot in 1903 by the (Thomas) Edison Manufacturing Company.
The silent film sweeps from Fulton Street on the North River (Hudson River) …
… all the way around to the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River giving us a rare glimpse of the hustle and bustle of the working harbor from over a century ago.
Thanks to NYCISEE for this amazing look into the past.
