Promenade of Ostriches1896

  • 3.8
Belle Époque Paris comes to life in this Lumière short filmed at the Paris Botanical Gardens. The titular ostrich leads the way, though we also see children riding atop camels and elephants. On the periphery, a couple appears deep in conversation and a man runs in the direction of the camera. The range of hats on view is astonishing.

A spectacular sight -- not just for adults but also for children who are able to enjoy the pleasures of the day riding atop horses or elephants or other animals, which appear to be well loved in the Paris Botanical Gardens.
