Over the past few years, I've acquired some images of the construction of St. Francis Cathedral and have decided to put them in chronological order.  The attached pdf file illustrates what must have been a monumental task, using only manual labor and very clever engineering.  I wonder if it could be duplicated today.

    Great photos. As I look at the modern photo of the "Gothic(not sure of terminology)" style building, it makes me wonder how it escaped the adobeficaation, plaster, and canales craze.
