About this Item

Title

  • Horse parade at the Pan-American Exposition

Other Title

  • Title from Edison films catalog, no. 288: Horse parade at Pan-American Exposition

Summary

  • "An excellent picture secured on the Esplanade of the Pan-American Exposition, showing the live stock exhibitor's exhibition of prize winners at the Pan-American. Here we show some of the most beautiful horses ever presented, the animals having been gathered from all sections of North America. The exhibition begins with Kentucky thoroughbreds, who prance by the camera and form a decided contrast with the great broad-chested Canadian draft horses. The horses pass our camera in parade form, being led or driven by their owners, and the entire parade is headed by a full band.140 ft."--Edison films catalog, no. 135.
