A riot of Technicolor vividness!
Thanks for sharing these :)
Thank you for sharing these photos with us.The photograph of Pope Pius laying in State in the Hall of the Swiss Guards at Castelgandolfo is very saddening. It was taken just before the Pope's body was removed to Rome and the dreadful decomposition caused by his doctor's bungling attempts at wierd embalming methods. It was a disgrace that Cardinal Tisserant and Cardinal Massela along with Dante, the Master of ceremonies allowed such a thing. An ignoble and disgraceful end to the life of such a saintly man.Jimmy
