According to Kottke, "Each frame of this 19th century film by the Lumière brothers was hand-colored to create an early color moving picture." I presume that the coloring was done at the time, and that the narration, which I can't understand, was more recent. Whatever the case, this is facsinating and beautiful, in addition to being the oldest film clip I've ever knowingly seen.
