Religious procession to steps of a cathedral in Germany celebrating founding of Weimar Republic

Celebration of the Weimar Republic in Germany, following World War I. A Roman Catholic procession led by clergy, and involving Karl Josef Schulte, Archbishop of Paderborn, moves through the streets of Cologne, Germany, to the steps at the front entrance of Cologne Cathedral. The procession also includes many persons including students in various uniforms, carrying banners. One banner refers to the years 1853 to 1903. Large numbers of persons fill the streets. Policemen on horseback are seen. (Note: It is not clear whether Felix von Hartman or Karl Joseph Schulte is the Bishop in this film. The weather appears to be pleasant, which suggests it might be Hartmann, who fell ill in September and died in November. He was succeeded by Karl Joseph Schulte, Bishop of Paderborn, who formally became Archbishop of Cologne in March, 1920. Historical records describing this film mention "Archbishop Shulpe" with no further information or details. We believe that to be a misspelling of "Schulte".)
