Newsreel footage, New York City, April 1927

Mrs. James Walker, wife of the Mayor of New York City, Manhattan Borough President Julius Miller, and Charlie, all ride in a stagecoach around Manhattan to promote “Slippery Gulch,” a charity fundraiser. That’s Charlie sitting on top of the stagecoach, holding a whip and wearing a cowboy hat. There are some nice closeups of him around the 1:10 mark.
