At the Ecole Normale Supérieure

This is a beautiful photo of the Class of 1858 at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, including Léon Ollé-Laprune.

Ollé-Laprune, who would have been aged 19 at the time of this photo, is in the middle, next to Henri Huvelin, who later became a priest, famous for converting Charles de Foucauld. In the detail from the photo below, we see Ollé-Laprune and Huvelin at the top of the picture.

A later photo of Henri Huvelin as a priest.
