At the opening of the film Pennsylvania Avenue is shown, nearly blocked by a motley mob of sightseers looking at the marching Suffragettes.

Florence Lawrence on a finely caparisoned charger
19 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is the best of evidence as to the crowds that swarmed through the streets of Washington at the time of the woman's parade the day before the inauguration. There are excellent views of the floats and various features of the pageant. One picture that will especially appeal to picture followers is a view of Florence Lawrence on a finely caparisoned charger. She faces the camera with her most charming smile. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
