A short film that shows a procession of monks from the Capuchin order. The Order of Friars Minor Capuchin is a religious order of Franciscan friars within the Catholic Church. After Edison introduced the Vitascope 35mm projector in 1986, American Mutoscope came out with its own 68mm projector that offered a superior image, and this film is taken on that film giving it a crisp quality that is preserved.

Good quality, so great value

A rather simple film, but with great quality to it - show how bigger films preserve more of the detail. Also, quite interesting to see monks of the Franciscan order, even if for just a short glimpse. It is not an everyday sight, and I am happy this got captured on film and that I got to watch it over 120 years later.
