Belle Époque Parisiens en 1900 – 4k 60 fps Lumiere Film

This short film, in the dawn of motion pictures, was filmed by the Lumiere brothers on May 24th 1900. At the peak of the ‘beautiful era’ or Les Belle Époque, we see Parisians using the famous rolling walkway, or Trottoir roulant.

The likes of Oscar Wilde, Debussy and Toulouse-Lautrec were all alive and mingling among their fellow Parisians. Sarah Bernhard, Colette, the list goes on.


Running along the edge of the Exposition, from the Esplanade of Les Invalides to the Champ de Mars, it passed through several stations along the way, where passengers could hop on or off.
It consisted of two mobile sections. The first you boarded ran at 4km per hour, and the second faster platform traveled at 8.5 kmph.
