Other key Republican figures are also seen. Rainy street scene outside the coliseum, where taxis are lined up and many delegates are walking along the sidewalk carrying umbrellas. Signs mark "entrance F" and "Press" entrance. Crowds of people carrying umbrellas form two wide columns on opposite sides of a rain wet street, each column walking in opposite direction from the other. One group includes many women in dark raincoats with white dresses showing below them. A live baby elephant (Republican mascot) stands in the street, covered with a blanket displaying the word "Votes."
