    Coming out of the car is Premier Venizelos still with bandaged arm, following the attempt at his life on July 30th, 1920. He is probably mounting the steps of what was then Parliament building, now the National Historical Museum at Stadhiou Street, Athens. King Konstantine (affectionately "Tino") is seen at the end. The crowd scene took place at the Panathenean Stadium and probably shows festivities for the signing of the Sèvres Treaty.
