Players are wearing "Newark" Jerseys. 1894. Spanish dancer Carmencita. She was the fist woman ever recorded in front of a camera. She was a dancer at Koster & Bial's Music Hall in New York City in the 1890's. 1894. The famous Annie Oakley sharp shooting glass balls and coins. Edison met Oakley at the 1889 Worlds Fair in Paris. 1894. Genuine Sioux in full war paint and war costumes doing their Ghost Dance.
