The Pastime Moving Picture Show
An advertising poster for Thomas Edison's Kinetoscope films shows two young women in bathing suits seated on a rock at the beach, c. 1910. The poster reads: 'The Pastime Moving Picture Show. The Moving Pictures are given with the latest Edison Fire-Proof Kinetoscope. The Motion Picture Subjects have been selected with a view to giving an interesting and amusing entertainment. Don't fail to see the great Fight Picture, giving a clever exhibition with the gloves, also the latest and most popular illustrated songs.'
