Newsnote: Vincentiana Purchase of the Week: Rue du Bac (interior photo). c. 1890

The Vincentiana Collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections Department recently acquired this sepia tone photograph c. 1890. The location is the old seminary. The occasion is certainly a Marian Feast, perhaps the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Interior photos of the rue du Bac maison mere are very rare.
