  • Short Summary

    Street scenes in New York in 1906, 1916 and 1926.

  • Description

    "We were curious to see a comparison of styles in Fifth Avenue Easter Parades." M/S showing traffic on 5th Avenue in New York. "Here's some city dressed beef in 1906." M/S of two largish women walking towards the camera. We then see a small boy walking towards the camera with a quizzical look on his face. Various shots of people walking towards and away from the camera. The low angle of the camera tends to focus on women's bottoms! "Fifth Avenue in 1916 - the same faces but different bodies." High angle shots of large number of pedestrians on 5th Avenue "These are 1926 models." M/S of pedestrians - some smartly dressed women in cloche hats and furs.

    Note: Section of the "Walter Futter's Curiosities" film "Rare Bits" probably bought in by Pathe for reuse.
