Colombier 10

End of the mass in Colombier. An elderly person, "Mayotte", with a traditional hat and a young girl with a straw one, carrying a small mass bag. Women had to cover their heads to enter a place of worship. The hat knot was usually positioned at the front of the hat. In the background the school of Colombier, built as well as the chapel in 1921 by the parishioners under the impulse of Father Irénée de Bruyn, also founder of the hospital of Saint Barthélemy, and destroyed by hurricane Irma in 2017.
