It must have been quite stormy in Malines...

... on that day in March 1926, when Jozef Ernest van Roey was installed as archbishop of Malines.

Here you see van Roey in procession next to Clemente Micara, who was then nuntio in Belgium and later became a cardinal.

This double-shot already shows that it must have been a windy day. Check out the tassles going all wild.

Finally, the whole cappa is out of control. These are the moments, that seperate the caudatarii from the trainbearers.
