Out for a Stroll ...

An interesting image of Cardinal Bourne returning down Ambrosden Avenue to Archbishop's House after 12 o'clock Mass on Sunday 2 July 1922. To his left is the Bishop of Verdun, Rt Rev. Charles Ginisty, and to his right Archbishop Fumasoni-Biondi, Secretary of Propaganda Fidei at Rome.

Note the contemporary ladies' fashions, the Canons in their summer cappa parva, and that even the altar servers (members of the Guild of St Gregory) wear buckled shoes.
