In commemoration of
the motion picture research conducted
in 1878 and 1879 at the Palo Alto Farm
now the site of Stanford University

portraying the attitudes of men and
animals in motion was conceived
by and executed under the direction
and patronage of
Leland Stanford
consecutive instantaneous exposures
were provided for by a battery of twenty
four cameras fitted with electro shutters

the photographs could be combined in projection
to give the true appearance of motion
