"Post and Gatty Drive to City Hall" [Run Time 1:11]

Around-the-world record-breaking aviators Wiley Post and Harold Gatty wave from the back of a boat. The two fliers are interviewed by a young woman as the ferry docks. Post and Gatty receive a ticker tape parade and arrive at New York City Hall greeted by large crowds, where they are given a salute by a group of police officers. An intertitle states "Mayor Walker does the honours at City Hall."
