Bruges 1930 - 1966

These photos come from the archives of the late Bishop Emile-Joseph De Smedt (Bruges diocesan archives), a friend of Cardijn and a close colleague, particularly during Vatican II.

Also included is a photo of his sister Livine De Smedt who was a fulltime "propagandist" for the Flemish Girls YCW, the VKAJ.
