A Bio-Gem from the Biograph Studio


This was a a delightful and unusual find today. The Biograph Studio was quite influential in the beginning of cinema and as well as offering moving portraits from their studio in Regents Street in London they also produced these small flip books in "Mutoscope" format of 'events'. I'm not entirely sure yet but its possible this is Queen Victoria's Jubilee or perhaps a subsequent coronation.
