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.
