Soldiers on horses ride down the city street. Men walking down the street, some already wearing Russian Army uniform, others wearing civilian clothes - they appear to be new recruits to the army. Women and children walk alongside them. All the people are high spirits, one man clowns about for camera, behaving as if drunk.
