Storyline

Two clubmen meet and decide to go out on a round op of the Rialto. You can't go boating down old Broadway, but in spite of that they embark on the schooner that sails in the night, and after they have sailed a few up and down several sounds, one of them lets several sounds escape him to the effect that he is a jolly good fellow, and that he won't arrive at the domicile until the Aurora Borealis has started work for the day. In short, he is pretty well beaten by the beverages imbibed in the course of the evening, and his friend, who has forfeited a few rounds and run away to live and drink another day, and therefore is still in possession of some of his senses, decides to take his all-in comrade home in a cab. He perches himself in the coachman's seat, and commences the journey home. At a point in the route a young lady, assuming that he is a coachman, hails him and he foreseeing an adventure, stops the coach and she enters. He takes her home, and is so struck with the beauty and grace... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Difficult to navigate schooners on Broadway
28 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A rather humorous picture, graphically depicting the results of undertaking to navigate a certain variety of schooner along Broadway. Those who have had experience will realize the exceptional difficulties of the situation and will appreciate the necessity of obtaining a conveyance to get one of the party safely home. They will not, however, understand the complications that may follow an escapade of this sort. No one could foresee that a young woman would hail the cab, nor could they expect the clubman to hire out as butler to be near the girl. But ultimately all the snarls are untangled and the situation clears with a genuine love match. All because it was difficult to navigate schooners on Broadway. - The Moving Picture World, October 1, 1910
