The Dome Exposed

  The dome at the Alberta legislature grounds has been covered for over a year and recently I noticed that it is exposed again. Apparently the workers took out the stones to examine for cracks and damage, then put them in place again.I think it was sand-blasted as well. What I saw for the first time was the copper lining, it was previously black.There is a crane to the left, which leaves its shadow across the surface. I look forward to taking photos without the covering but wonder if I bothered to take photos with  the covering on? Ha, think I should have.

  1. They did a nice job. That was done on our city hall too. Nice photo against the blue sky. Here, rain and more rain, but better than snow.

  2. Sure looks nice and restored. I think there are too many pictures we should have taken, but we can go around and think about that…

    • I remember thinking that it wasn’t worth taking a photo of but seems that I was mistaken.I missed the chance to record history. Live and Learn.
