Card. Gibbons

11894vCardinal Gibbons in a winter cappa magna and a biretta with a pompon (which is weird – cardinals wear birettas without them). The assistant priest in cope goes before him (after consideration of his presence you should say: paces). The photo was taken during ordination of bishop Turner, which took place in March 1919.
