Looking yesterday, it does indeed seem that all the Portland was thankfully retained. Just patched up like a quilt 🙂

And look how beautifully the arches were orginally constructed to the underside. The stone up there is also in excellent condition, avoiding all the ill-effects of weather.

Many of the columns exhibit signs of age. It’s interesting to see the way facings are used and positioned can weather parts of the same column in different ways.

It’s odd that all the granite was replaced, while most/all of the Portland retained. One would think the limestone would be the first to go…
