  • Description

    Advance Australia - Mr Hughes, the Prime Minister, opens new Bank of Australia building in Melbourne.

    Crowds press around the entrance to the new building and watch Mr Hughes opening the door with a big key. People start streaming inside. General view of the building - great architecture. Shot slowly pans from top to bottom. Looks like the kind of building Harold Lloyd might climb up.

    G 417 A.
