Joseph-Médard Émard

To continue my little series on Canadian prelates, here are some photos of Joseph-Médard Émard, Archbishop of Ottawa, from the day of his installation in 1922.

Great pictures as always. What are the strips of cloth hanging down in the first picture?
And is it just the light, or was the archbishop a religious and is therefore wearing choir dress in a different colour?

These are a means of holding back the cappa so that it doesn't come down in front (as seen in the second photo of the Gilroy/Griffin post from two days ago) if it is not wanted.
