Large-scale coronal structures (helmet streamers), observed in the
white-light solar corona during total eclipses, are mostly seen above
prominences. These streamers are supported by the global magnetic field of the
Sun. However, the distribution of prominences over a solar cycle shows both
the poleward and equatorward migrations. The location of observed white-light
coronal streamers during total eclipses in the period 1988 --1998 will be
compared and discussed with that of prominences. It seems that the distribution
of the above mentioned streamers matches the distribution of prominences and
shifts together with prominence belts to the poles. A possible scenario for a
such development is described and discussed.
