Palm Sunday in Sevilla

6984445Canons in cappae during the procession around the Cathedral of Blessed Virgin Mary in Seville on Palm Sunday, April 4, 1909. The covered cross visible in the photo is being carried in front of the cathedral chapter which, in turn, is followed by the archbishop. He is carrying an intricately braided palm, while his head is being kept in shade by using a special kind of umbrella on a long bar. It is being held by an altar server walking next to the prelate.
