Liturgical Images from the Vatican in Pius XII's Era

I was going through some boxes of books this past weekend when I stumbled across a coffee table book from the Pius XII era. What delighted me with it was that a decent number of the photographs were liturgical in nature.

I realize that many here have expressed interested in the historical ceremonial life of the Vatican, particularly of the Pope, as expressed prior to the liturgical reforms.

With that in mind, I took some photographs of the pictures within the book, as best as could be done. I present them here.
