The Boxing Cats

Watch an accessible version of this video.

Beginning in the late 1880s, Thomas Edison’s labs not only built the equipment for filming and projecting films, but produced popular content for the new medium.

This film of boxing cats was created circa July 1894 in Edison’s Black Maria studio.
