Melboune Cup - A Little Bit Of Film History

The most popular and famous race in Australia is Melbourne cup day, which takes place on the first Tuesday in November.

One of the earliest films of the Melbourne Cup was shot in 1896, which was at the time shown not only in Australia but also in London, St Petersburg and Paris.For a time when people were not used to the moving image , one can see how the producer encouraged and directed the movement of the crowds.
