The old and the new

The last photo I posted of the new Celtic Cross for the South end of the building was missing a vital component- the side by side comparison with the original wooden.  Here you can see the wear and tear on the wooden cross, which dates back to the construction of the Cathedral in 1895.  The new cross will be installed in the coming months as the roof is being completed.  The original Celtic Cross is to be preserved in the Vancouver Archives.
