"Showing the entire trip from Brooklyn to New York. The immense towers stand out clear and distinct against the sky. The best picture of the Brooklyn Bridge yet secured."
New Brooklyn to New York via Brooklyn Bridge, No. 1 (1899) Online
A camera is mounted on the front of a train, focused straight ahead. We are in a tunnel, with light coming closer - a billboard for Chas H. Fletcher products is visible. Then, we are out of the tunnel into sunlight; we pass the billboard and two steam whistles, and the train curves to the left: the Brooklyn Bridge is in front of us. We travel across it, pedestrians visible to the left of the train, horse-drawn carriages to the right. After about 30 seconds, virtually the only thing we can see is the iron lattice work on either side and above the train. After a full minute of this, a bit of Manhattan comes into view; the frame is dominated by buildings at the end of the bridge.
