Caption

Kinetoscope film advert. Advertising poster from 1913 for films shown using the kinetoscope produced by the US inventor Thomas Edison (1847-1931). Initial kinetoscopes were individual viewers, with the later versions developed by Edison in around 1912 (the Projecting Kinetoscope) able to project the film being shown. It was not until 1923 that a practical method was devised to synchronise sound and film, though illustrated songs (bottom) were an early form of combining film and sound.
