About This Image

Charles Urban (1867–1942) was a pioneer of color movies and early documentary film. After viewing Edison's Vitascope and Lumiere Cenematographe projectors in New York in 1896 at the age of 29, he proceeded to enlist the talents of Walter Isaacs to construct a new projector, called the Bioscope. By 1898 he lead Britain's Warwick Trading Company, which soon became the most prominent British film company of the period, with its reputation firmly based on documentary and news films.
