First Photo in History of the Holy Face of Manoppello

Through the great generosity and kindness of Paul Badde I am sharing the first photo in history of the Holy Face of Manoppello and an image of the copper plate used to produce it.

Paul wrote:  "I took the photo from the copper plate used for the first printing of a first photo from circa 1900.   I found the copper plate in the museum of the Volto Santo 10 years ago, which has gone lost unfortunately in the meantime, here again attached and converted into a photo by Hildegard Schuhmann from Nuremberg, a longtime, precious  and always helpful friend of mine."

Here are a few recent photos by Paul Badde of the Holy Face and the Shrine of the Holy Face
