Over route of Roosevelt parade in an automobile

SUMMARY This film is a review by automobile of the arrival parade route of President Theodore Roosevelt, on Tuesday, May 12, 1903. The film was shot from about 2:10pm to 2:15pm (shortly before the 3pm parade) and shows street and building decorations and excited crowds. The portion of the route shown is in the heart of the downtown business district. The later portion of the route is shown in the film "Market Street Before Parade" (1903). Passing northwest up Third Street, the automobile turns northeast onto Market Street, then north onto Montgomery Street. After a cut, the driver has made the first left turn from Montgomery Street and is half a block west on Sutter Street. The driver turns south from Sutter to Kearny Street, and crosses Post Street en route to Market Street. Having come "full circle," the driver turns right (southwest) onto Market Street and continues along Market to the Grant/O'Farrell streets intersection (at right).
