Renovation: St. James Cathedral of Orlando, Florida [Updated]

Picking up upon our renovation post of yesterday, one of our readers sends in some images of an ongoing renovation at St. James Cathedral in Orlando, Florida.

This renovation is actually partly renovation and part restoration. Let us begin with the facade of the cathedral itself, as it stood until recently.
