2nd Special Service Battalion, Canadian Infantry: Parade (1899)

** (out of 4)

Edison short shows Canadian troops leaving Quebec and on their way to the ar in Transvaal. The camera is stationed on what appears to be a bridge, which catches all the action of the men walking through the streets with thousands of people cheering them on. Once again you're not going to get any real "entertainment" out of something like this but it does remain interesting from a historic point of view or if you just want to see what early motion pictures were like. This type of short plays out like what would eventually be called a newsreel and while there are a few interesting images here that's about it.
