Kyle,

 

I love these. I'm looking forward to this series! It will be interesting to see how it progresses. I particularly like the middle one there for *My Baby*.

BarnsdalesMovingPictures1905

(1905)

In 1903, Walter Barnsdale of Wisconsin closed up his bicycle shop and decided to go on the road, exhibiting motion pictures to rural audiences. Armed with a generator - these were the days when many areas lacked electrical power - Barnsdale showed a variety of shorts and features, firmly establishing himself in the entertainment business (he wasn't the only member of the family to entertain the public. Walter's brother, Frank, was a circus midget who toured with Ringling Brothers dressed in a Revolutionary War costume as General Tom Thumb). Recognized as one of the pioneers of the motion picture industry, Barnsdale did as much to popularize the emerging medium of motion pictures as Edison, the Lumiere Brothers, or any of the other leading cinema exhibitors.

 

AustinFlood1911

(1911)

Produced by the Thanhouser Film Corporation, there is little known about this silent short. The flood the title is referring to occurred in Austin, Texas on September 30, 1911. A result of the Bayless Pulp & Paper Dam collapse, the devastation was so great, few people thought that Austin would be rebuilt.

*"Excellent stuff, Kyle! I love looking through old movie magazines."* - Scottman

 

It's good to hear that you'll enjoy these types of postings. I have more than a few planned for this thread.

 

Thanks for letting me know.

Chief,

 

This gallery for *M&MS* is terrific. How cool to come home tonight and see a pic of Mary Pickford. I'm reading Jeanine Basinger's Silent Stars at lunch each day and am reading the chapter on Pickford right now.

These are incredible Kyle! I am so glad I checked out the forums today. Fantastic posters and photos. The colors are so beautiful, and the detail rich. I love the photos, they seem like they are from another world.

 

I am so glad you decided to do another auxiliary Gallery - especially with some more of the early artwork.
