Re: Re: Olympia Theatre Portico
Well as deadline after deadline slipped by, look who was finally caught slinking along Dame Street of an early Sunday morning 🙂
Aww – it looks so cute bundled up all nice and cosy.
The canopy looks magnificent in its newly restored condition – the detail is so crisp, and the coloured glass so vivid.
Then later in the day, the delicate task of hoisting it into position began.
Quite a few expert hands on site to manage the job.
It’s wonderful that the firm who built the canopy around 1900 are the same company responsible for its restoration and reinstallation: Heritage Engineering of Saracen Ironworks in Scotland.
