Hayes and Finch

Yesterday the latest Hayes and Finch catalogue arrived. This doesn`t normally detain me very long. However p.98 stood out for me. Summorum Pontificum has reached Hayes and Finch! I was only disappointed that I couldn`t identify the clergy involved (although the people in the catalogue are models this just seemed a bit specalised). There are even a few Roman-style chasubles for sale on p.111.

Hopefully clergy but could be actors/models like many catalogues - hence the backview.

Interesting to read your view of Hayes and Finch, and the news that they have (eventually) taken Summorum Pontificum on board.

To go off at a tangent: Hayes and Finch was a big name in Liverpool when I was young, and particularly in my family. My maternal grandfather was a foreman candlemaker with the firm. Some of my relations from my mother’s generation, both by blood and by marriage, also worked for it, and others worked for Rockliff Brothers, the ecclesiastical printers. I always find it slightly strange when the names of these firms crop up – an echo of my childhood, I suppose.
