Le kinetoscope parlor de Forbes & Wallace's (28->29 décembre 1894)

À la fin du mois de décembre Forbes & Wallace's installent un kinetoscope :

Springfield, December, 28, 1894.
The Wonderful Edison Kinetoscope.
The latest invention of the Wizard. Have you ever peeped into one— seen the Highland Fling the Fairies Dance, Scene In a Barber Shoh or Caicedo dancing on his rope? It’s a wonderful experience !
We have purchased four of these electrical wonders at a great expense, and will put them on exhibition, beginning today, in our carpet department. These are for the benefit of our customers, who must present their purchase checks at the exhibit. Others will be charged a fee of 5 cents for a peep into the four boxes.
We expect to have the exhibit ready at 10 o’clock this morning.

Des ennuis techniques compromettent le fonctionnement du kinetoscope :

Springfield, December, 31, 1894.
We can only exhibit the Edison Kinetoscopes from 10 o'clock in the morning till 4 o'clock in the afternoon every day, for the present, owing to a defect in the batteries which run the machinery inside them; we expect to have this righted in a few days.
