The Case of the Disappearing Scaffolding

I couldn't resist going to the site for a peek.
We've been waiting a long time to see the beautiful brick.
We have actually never seen this arch without scaffolding obscuring it.  So close!
The scaffolding began going up in January of 2014, just one year ago.  You recall that the collapsing roof during the 2010 fire pulled down three of the four gables and these had to be rebuilt.
The temple has come a long way since then.
I saw a lot to admire today, such as the dentils under the new gable eaves.
The gablet was also lovely.
As hard as the men were working, they can't overlook details.
One important fact is they are taking down the structure they are standing on.
Second, the scaffolding is affixed quite securely to the temple...
Although it's clear they are working on remedying that.
I could not resist trying to see the windows.
This is where we were in December, still blocked.  I can't be greedy.  Yet.
For a peek, this was satisfying.  However, temperance in all things, at least for awhile.
