A panoramic scene of the Dreamland and Luna Park amusement parks on New York’s Coney Island, with their many lights like the reflection of a vertiginous carousel. The disappearing and reappearing glimmering points of light trace the outlines of swings, a Ferris wheel and shimmering pavilions promising fantastical experiences.


In the early 20th century, Edwin S. Porter (1870–1941) was the most influential film director in the USA. His best known works include the documentary Life of an American Fireman (1903) and one the world’s first Westerns, The Great Train Robbery (1903).
