Holy Saturday - the morning Vigil

Pictures from the 1930s (judging by the headgear of the lady top left) of the Easter fire being kindled on the steps of the Cathedral. Before the liturgical reforms, the Vigil took place on Saturday morning. Note the Cathedral chaplains in their fur cappas!

The brazier looks identical to the one we use now - although that is located inside the Cathedral in the evening.
