Plot Suburbanite making his purchase. He buys his ladder, and after a good deal of tilting manages to get it on to his shoulder and makes for home. In the street (a crowded thoroughfare). Futile attempts to balance the ladder. Mashing people's heads, knocking off hats, the ladder swings right and left, causing terror and destruction in every direction. He tries to board a 'bus; he tries to climb the steps with his ladder, but the ladder pulls him down. He reaches the top with the ladder, only to be chased by the conductor and slung over the side with his ladder. He places the ladder against the side, only to have it flung back on to his head. He makes sundry attempts to board the 'bus, but eventually gives it up as a bad job. He attempts to mount an electric tram by placing the ladder against the side, and before he can reach the top the tram commences to move, and he and the ladder are precipitated into the road. He wanders, under much distress of spirit, about the various thoroughfares, abused by many, vainly seeking a conveyance with a driver of sufficient courage to convey him to the nearest railway station. He persuades the driver of a four-wheel cab to carry him and his ladder to the station. Struggle to mount the cab. The cab mounted. Difficulty in finding suitable position for ladder. The ladder carried at right angles to cab across driver's knees. Imagine a twenty-foot ladder at right angles to a cab being driven through crowded streets! Result, destruction and trouble in every direction; up one street and down another, an infuriated crowd behind. The vehicle overtaken and stopped. The man and the ladder pulled off. Cabby drives away, glad to get out of it, leaving the other to face the infuriated crowd. Almost exhausted and much depressed in spirit he meets a few friends; they go in to have a social drink, leaving the ladder out doors to the further annoyance of the public. When our friends reappear they find the ladder has been placed before the entrance, and they trip over it into the street. All are under the influence of liquor, and they make an amusing sight as they attempt to carry the ladder in front of them. The experience culminates in the friends being taken into custody by the police and, luckily for the suburbanite, he is enabled to proceed. The man and the ladder at the railway station. Frantic effort to get the ladder through the station doorway; he makes frantic efforts to get a twenty-foot ladder through a ten-foot doorway in an upright position. Some friendly porters and passengers help him out of his difficulty, and he bolts through the booking office, past the barrier, on to the platform. Struggles on the platform. More havoc and distress. Arrival of the train. Owner and ladder bundled into the guard's van as luggage. Suburbanite arrives home, packed as goods, bound with rope between the two halves of the ladder, which has apparently been cut in half for the purpose, and makes an admirable strait-jacket.... search for Buying a Ladder on IMDb
