• Short Summary

    Aviation's first couple - Amy Johnson & Jim Mollison - receive great welcome in New York.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "New York. 'Amy and Jim' on Broadway! 200,000 turn out to greet them as they proceed along the 'Heroes' Route' to the City Hall."

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    Amy Johnson and husband Jim Mollison (with bandaged head) ride in the back of an open car along Broadway. Crowds cheer as they pass. As we get closer we can see the Amy's leg and elbow are also bandaged.

    Good shots of tickertape parade.

    Unidentified man - presumably Mayor - makes speech while Jim and Amy on either side of him. The couple of aviators are presented with medals.
