... thank you ... :-)

first I must correct a detail about the c u r r e n t spire: it was designed and erected between 1965 and 1973 (not in the 1950ties as I wrote yesterday).

Enclosed is a picture of the cathedral taken around 1960 showing the damaged spire ...

... find enclosed some more details about the 1860 spire ... as far as I can see, the spire is hollow. It was made from cast iron to achieve eduction of static load on the crossing vault pillars ...

This is so much more information than I was able to find. Thank you for sharing it with me. It's really good to see it. That 1960's photo of the old spire is wonderful, by far the best I've seen of it. Thanks for taking the time to show me this. It's really nice of you.

I managed to get the inner vertical buttress supports on the left hand side of the cathedral completed last night, I'll glue them this weekend, then hope to post some photos soon.

A bit more progress, more cutting and punching holes. I've now completed this small section of the flying buttresses.

Very beautiful indeed! May I ask why you didn't color the cut and folded edges?
