The clip starts with a crowd watching a large parade of soldiers march in New York City on Broadway. Mayor O’Dwyer and his wife are seen in the audience, and some crowd members hold umbrellas. A man in a suit gives a speech at a podium filled with microphones, and American flags are seen behind the stage. The new mayor presents the old one with a flag and a handshake, and Mayor O’Dwyer stands and waves in the backseat of a car as it moves.
