Decorative elements on dome

Just below the decorative elements on the dome, the wooden parts of the drum have been replaced with steel. The restored dome and drum were unveiled earlier this month.

The new steel structure can be seen next to what is likely an original piece of a wooden beam, dating back to 1888.

Workers constructed the new structure for the portion of the drum that sits just below the dome.

What the section looked like before the damaged outer steel layer was peeled off.
