1899 Film of Train Crossing Over Brooklyn Bridge – Fletcher’s Castoria Ad Clearly Seen – Library of Congress

Thomas Edison - Library of Congress - Crossing to New York Over Brooklyn Bridge
This still was taken from a Library of Congress archival footage of a train crossing the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan. The Fletcher’s Castoria ad on the right is clearly seen in the beginning of the film. Steam billowing from what possibly was the Domino Sugar Refiner is an awesome sight.
