About this Item


  • Native Daughters


  • "Taken at San Francisco, Cal., at the Golden Jubilee. In the foreground is shown an immense concourse of people, including ladies and children, while the background is formed by very high buildings, from the windows of which numerous flags are waving. The film opens showing the native daughters mounted on horses, passing through the immense throngs of on-lookers. They are dressed in white costumes, wear white Alpine hats, and are followed by a beautifully decorated float, drawn by white horses"--Edison films catalog.
