• Short Summary

    American President Roosevelt delivering a speech.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "WASHINGTON".

    Washington D. C., United States of America (USA).

    American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt talking from a platform - natural sound. He talks about his belief in his democratic government which can and will deliver all that he has promised to the people... He claims that all that is possible within US Constitution.

    It is unclear where he is speaking and to whom - he is talking from platform at night, camera flashes were seen (press) and applauds were heard - could be the grounds of White House. Voiceover says this is his last speech before his transatlantic trip.

    There is no mention of this item in the original paperwork for this issue. It is possible that it belongs to another issue.
