    Queen Marie of Romania visits New York.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Welcome - Your Majesty. Democratic America gives right royal reception to Queen Marie of Rumania [aka Romania], first crowned head to visit USA".

    New York City, United States of America.

    Top shot of convoy of cars and mounted police travelling slowly down 5th Avenue. Various L/S of open topped car driving behind row of mounted police, in the back Queen Marie waves to crowds. The Queen's car stops. The two gentlemen travelling with the Queen get out. Queen Marie stands up and waves to a troop of soldiers. She then is helped onto pavement, she walks between two rows of policemen and up some steps.

    M/S of Queen Marie and entourage posing on red carpeted steps (outside New York library?). C/U of Queen Marie and a man in a top hat (people pass in front of camera obscuring view). Good C/U showing just Queen's face.

    Another version of story starts at 01:06:48. This version is shorter but contains almost identical shots to the first.
