The Kinetoscope

In the 1890s, Thomas Edison worked with his assistant and part-time photographer, William Dickson to create a motion picture camera. They created a series of short films that could be viewed on a coin-operated, peephole viewing cabinet called a kinetoscope.

“Edison” premieres January 27, 2015 on PBS American Experience.
