• Short Summary

    Former New York Mayor Jimmy Walker returns to his city and makes speech in harbour.

  • Description

    Titles read: "JIMMIE [sic] WALKER - Famous ex-Mayor returns to New York."

    New York, United States of America.

    Former Mayor of New York City Jimmy Walker is seen on the deck of a ship as he arrives back in the harbour. Ships sound their horns to welcome him; crowds of people wait on the shore to greet him.

    Jimmy makes a speech before microphones saying that all the people gathered have the profound gratitude of him and his wife for this manifestation of good old-fashioned friendship. His wife says she's so happy for him, she even wants him to have the last word - laughs from everyone. Jimmy says "Well, that's a change, so let's go home and see if it will still go!".

    Note: paperwork states this is part of West end issue.
