Synopsis: 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. "Emperor Wilhelm II. Dedicates a Memorial Plaque to Empress Friedrich of Kronberg" shows Emperor Wilhelm and Prince Heinrich dedicating a relief at Johanniskirche. The sculptor Professor Adolf von Hildebrand, who has produced the bronze relief, is also present at the ceremony.
