Bishop Alter's Installation, June, 17, 1931

From left to right: Joseph Henry Albers, Auxiliary Bishop of Cincinnati and, later, Bishop of Lansing, Michigan; Karl Alter, Bishop of Toledo; and John Timothy McNicholas, Archbishop of Cincinnati.
If they don't look very festive, they had good cause. The Depression was in full swing and that was the day every bank in the country was ordered to close.
The picture was taken in front of St. Francis de Sales, Downtown,then the cathedral of the diocese.
From the 1950 history of Immaculate Conception Parish.

I've been told Bishop Blair has some very good crosiers to choose from.
