Once upon a time in France...


This magnificent photo is from France. The Cardinal in the middle is Louis-Henri-Joseph Cardinal Luçon, Archbishop of Reims from 1906 to 1930. The Cardinal to his right looks like Francis Cardinal Bourne, Archbishop of Westminster from 1903 to 1935. The prelate in watered silk on the far right could be Bonaentura Ceretti, Papal Nuncio to France from 1921 to 1931.

Leo, that is not Cardinal Ceretti on the far right.

Yes, I wasn't sure either. Hard to see his biretta properly so it's difficult to tell if he's a Nuncio or a Cardinal.
