  • Description

    New York in the United States of America. Full titles read: "Miniature Motor Car. It will carry you or you can carry it.!"

    M/S A crowd of people gather on the roadside (mainly men!). We see the miniature motor car for the first time (it truly is miniature!). Someone (perhaps the owner) lifts the car onto it's side and changes one of the front wheels, the crowd looks on.

    M/S from behind the car the owner picks up the car by the front wheel axis and pushes it backwards off screen. We are then treated to a superb L/S of the car being driven out of the entrance of a building and down a short flight of steps, the crowd watch in amazement. M/S of a member of the crowd approaching the driver and shaking hands after the car has stopped.
