The All Saints, Margaret Street, Corpus Christi procession of 1959

All Saints, Margaret Street, which I have blogged about before, is so High it makes the Pope look like a Strict Baptist.

This silent video shows its Corpus Christi procession of 1959. Anglican nuns, women members of the congregation with their heads covered, choirboys in buckled shoes and God knows who else process a couple of blocks north of the department stores of Oxford Street.

It's Barbara Pym or The Towers of Trebizond come to life.
