Fringe elements

If you were going to Oklahoma, I wonder if you could get a surrey with a fringe on top.

Your local movie theater

Looks like it was one of the earliest movie theaters. Edison, I believe, was the at the center of movie making at the time.

Shocking Portraits?

What is the gizmatron with the dual (triple?) clock faces outside of the portrait studio?

Edison's latest productions

It is 1901. All I can see in the street are horses, and Edison managed to distribute moving pictures into Hot Springs, Arkansas. Cool!

Amusement Park

In the making. Fortune tellers, Shooting Gallery, McLeod's show. In a hundred years or so, slots and space invaders.
