Description

Herbert Booth was one of the pioneers of filmmaking in Australia, and this film from 1898 is considered to be the first narrative film on social work in Australia. It was used together with a lecture by the Salvation Army depicting different aspects of their work. The film consisted of 20 "lifelike cinematographe films"[1] (that ended up as 25, each about 1 minute long) together with around 200-300 limelight views(glass slides, like "Soldiers Of The Cross") and the whole show lasted for around two and a half hours. The films and limelight views featured individual stories throughout the lecture.
