Highs in the mid-Fifties

Don't be confused by the anachronistic Gary Owens soundbites; this is a Marian procession snarling traffic in Weymouth, Mass., sometime in the 1950s. YouTube user Ponderosa65 posted it along with other vintage home movies. It captures something of the time when Bishop Sheen's TV ratings were rivaling Uncle Miltie's. And check out that habit on the nun! You don't see ones like that anymore.
