News of the Week October 16, 1915 -- October 16, 2015

The 16-October-1915 Motography featured "News of the Week as Shown in Films," with items from current newsreels.

"Gothamites watch Boston fireboats give special display.  Copyright 1915 Hearst-Selig News Pictorial."   What were Boston fireboats doing in New York?  I couldn't find anything about it.

"Harry Ford discusses subway Plan with Secretary of State Daniels.   Copyright 1915 by Pathe News."  I may be mistaken, but that looks like Henry Ford.

"Subway cave-in at Seventh Avenue and Twenty-fourth St., New York.  Copyright 1915 by Universal Animated Weekly."  An entire block collapsed on 22-September-1915. 

"President Wilson returns to Princeton, N. J. to vote at primaries.  Copyright 1915 Hearst-Selig News Pictorial."  Before he was President of the United States and Governor of New Jersey, Woodrow Wilson had been the President of Princeton University. 

"Streets of Syracuse flooded as a result of washout.  Copyright 1915 by Pathe News."  Onondaga Creek flooded in Syracuse, New York in September, 1915.

"Scene of recent subway cave-in, in New York City.  Copyright 1915, by Mutual Weekly."  Mutual reported on the same collapse as Universal.
