Pathescope movies

Pathescope movies preceded 8mm by decades. I recently came across a shoe box containing a few Pathescope reels. While these are not true "found films," they are none the less lost to those involved.

Charles Pathe'. Inventor of the 9.5 Pathescope format.

The reels are dated from December of 1926.

"Movies" were a technical marvel at one time. Today they are commonplace.

Where's my X-Box ?
