Panorama St. Louis Exposition from Launch (1904)
About Panorama St. Louis Exposition from Launch
The first scenes were photographed from a boat that was either rowed or sculled along the waterway of the st. Louis exposition. The film shows the principal exhibit buildings lining the mall, as well as statues and bridges. The next camera position was stationary. The scenes show decorated rowboats and motorboats laden with costumed people as though part of a parade. The lead boat in the parade contains a single occupant in military uniform.
