Today in 1888, Louis Le Prince shot Roundhay Garden Scene, the earliest surviving motion picture.  It features Adolphe Le Prince, Sarah Whitley, Joseph Whitley and Harriet Hartley walking around in the garden of Oakwood Grange, the home of Joseph and Sarah Whitley in Roundhay, a suburb of Leeds, United Kingdom. In 1930 the National Science Museum in London produced photographic copies of the remaining parts from the 1888 filmstrip.
