His Honour Gives Up Beret For Charity

1931, by British Pathé
The title reads: "His Honour Gives Up Beret For Charity. Mayor Walker parts with his unique headgear, giving it to Mrs Clark of women's committee for hospital campaign."
A woman, probably Mrs Clark, gives the keys to the Women's Committee thrift shop to New York Mayor, James 'Gentleman Jimmy' Walker. The thrift shop raises money for cancer hospitals.
Mayor Walker offers one of his famous berets for sale in the shop. He is asked to try it on so that everyone can see.
