Atlantic City over a century ago...in motion.

Here is a rare treat for you fans taken by the Wizard himself ... Thomas A. Edison.

The occasion ? The Floral Parade on the Atlantic City boardwalk in 1904...yup, 1904.

I watched it a few times to see the amazing detail. One of the floats says "Young's Pier." Look at the children and the old school policemen.
