Crowds lining streets of Washington, DC, waiting for parade to begin marking armistice ending World War I
Washington DC USA Date:1918, November Duration:1 min 1 sec Sound:NO SOUND
An open truck filled to overflowing with people celebrating the Armistice ending World War 1. Camera tracks the truck briefly as it maneuvers around street corners. Crowds line the sidewalks. Then camera films spectators from a vehicle driving along the streets. A particularly large number of spectators surround the Old Executive Office Building. Many hold small American flags. But there is no cheering or merrymaking, as such, because everyone is waiting for the parade and related events to begin. The bulk of spectators are women. Several uniformed soldiers are seen, and some children. Crowds around the entrance to the White House.
