Director: Julius Neubronner

Julius Neubronner (1852-1932), a chemist and inventor from Kronberg was one of the first people to film in the Rhine-Main region. He purchased his first camera in 1903, a "Kino" manufactured by Dresdner Foto-Firma. With his camera Neubronner recorded historical events as well as the everyday life of his family. Furthermore, he also shot short sketches performed by himself and his family on a stage set-up in the garden of their home. The "Emperor Prize Motor Race", as prompted by the German emperor, was designed as a reversal of the Gordon Bennett Motor Race, covering the same track and starting at Castle Saalburg in Bad Homburg, but going in the opposite direction. The still footage shows the passing cars in one part of the track.
