Today's featured picture

A Visit to the Seaside, a 1908 film directed by British filmmaker George Albert Smith. This work was the first film screened using Kinemacolor, a color motion picture process developed by Smith and used commercially from 1908 to 1914. This additive two-color process involved photographing and projecting a black-and-white film behind alternating red and green filters. It was later used for films such as With Our King and Queen Through India (1912), The World, the Flesh and the Devil (1914), and Little Lord Fauntleroy (1914).

Film: George Albert Smith
