  • This is a short clip of Gov. Doyle Carlton's inauguration in Tallahassee, January 1929. The film begins with outgoing Gov. Martin and Mrs. Martin getting into an open car. Then, the film shows the crowd gathered on the east side of the Capitol and the parade with military bands and early floats. This film never shows Doyle Carlton, though the title card identifies the footage as his inauguration. It is possible that it is the former governor's (John Martin's) inauguration.
