Bricks and bombs are thrown
20 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a full reel given over to a free-for-all fight, in which bricks and bombs are thrown and the police. fire department and militia respond to quell the riot. It all begins over Cohen's saleslady, whose parcels are opened by the Irish children. A race war ensues and the situations contain a lot of harmless amusement free from vulgarity. - The Moving Picture World, August 16, 1913
