Flemington Station 1896

This is undoubtably, Australia's oldest footage given it was shot a few hours before the 1896 Melbourne Cup on Tuesday 3rd November 1896.


The video used to be available through YouTube but was removed and replaced with a Private Message.

Footage from the video 'Living Melbourne' 1896-1910 was released in 1988.

When we checked in October 2013, we were unable to locate this video at the National Film and Sound Archive.
