Lourdes Pilgrimage 1928. An attractive original photograph, 6 x 8 ½ ins, mounted on card, showing a group of about 75 people, men and women, mostly lay people with a few clerics, standing and kneeling outside a large buttressed building in Lourdes, the group flanked by two embroidered banners, one with legend in Irish ‘A Naoimh Eoghain, A Phatruin Dhoire, Guidh Orainn’, the other with a similar prayer addressed to ‘Naomh Columcille’, the photo captioned ‘Lourdes 1928’ and signed by the French photographer. Presumably the group was from the Derry area.
