    The parade seen here took place on 28 January 1929.

    "Captain Fried" is Captain George Fried.

    On the right of picture at 00:56 is the Mayor of New York City, Jimmy Walker.

    "M/S of him and other military officers, the camera pans across them." - the four men seen in the panning shot are as follows;

    The man seen left of picture at 01:00 in the bowler hat is then New York City Police Commissioner Grover Whalen.

    To Whalen's right at 01:00 is Giuseppe Favoboro, one of the rescued men.

    Then to Favoboro's right is First Officer Harry Manning, one of the rescuers.

    Then coming in to view at 01:02 is George Fried. Here's a great photo of the heroic Captain.....
