Vintage Footage of a Rush of Christmas Shoppers in New York City Circa 1930

A huge crowd is seen on the roads of New York city. Buses, trolleys, and motor cars crawling their way in the rush. Jam packed streets and stores. ‘Buy Now’ scheme seems to attract people which would give them triple advantage of escaping the last minute rush, seizing on bargaining prices and providing work opportunity for thousands. Ladies and gents seen buying stuff for Christmas.
