  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Blessing of the Waters - Prince Nicolas of Rumania takes part in annual picturesque religious ceremony on banks of River Dumbovitga."

    Bucharest, Rumania.

    Various shots show Rumanian clergymen walking from a church and through the city of Bucharest, some carrying placards, others carry decanters of holy water that they sprinkle about with brushes. Military men and dignitaries are also present.

    The parade reaches the River Dumbovitga where Prince Nicolas (?) tosses a small crucifix into the water. Four men in white robes who are wading in the river take the cross back to the clergymen.
