Archival records suggest two candidates. In the book ‘Ons Bioscopisch bedrijf - voorheen en thans’ (‘Our cinematographic company - then and now’, 1911) Franz Anton Nöggerath Jr. writes that his production company, Filmfabriek F.A. Nöggerath, made a short colour film of Haarlem’s flower fields in 1908.
A year later, in 1909, Alberts Frères made the short artistic film De legende over het ontstaan van de bloembollencultuur te Haarlem. This film consists of two parts: the first part is set in the seventeenth century, and the second part, set in the present (1909), depicts a visit to the flower fields. Alberts Frères also reports that the second part of the film is coloured.
