New York City USA Date:1931, October 1 Duration:1 min 31 sec Sound:NO SOUND
The Empire State Building in New York. View of the Empire State Building dominating the Manhattan skyline. Good Year blimp with lettering "Columbia" on it approaches and passes directly over the Empire State Building. Trailing from it is a long rope with a bundle tied on the end. The bundle swings into the side of the Empire State Building near its top. An employee grabs the bundle. Huge crowd gathered at the base of the Empire State Building. Next scene shows a Good Year employee (Good Year lettering on his shirt) delivering the bundle of what appears to be newspapers to New York State Governor Al Smith in the crowd on the street outside the Empire State Building. A very special delivery.
