William Friese-Greene stone plaque in Brighton

It was here that the inventor of cinematography William Friese-Greene 1855-1921 carried out his original experiments which led to a world-wide industry

William Friese-Greene (7 September 1855 – 5 May 1921) (born William Edward Green) was a British portrait photographer and prolific inventor. He is principally known as a pioneer in the field of motion pictures and is credited by some as the "inventor" of cinematography, although his work post-dates that of Louis Le Prince, who successfully shot the world's first moving pictures in Leeds in 1888.
