Finishing the First Sprire

The roofers have finished installing the copper shingles on the "flat" part of the roof on the south side. They will presumably begin work on the north side of the church soon.

The crane is in position between the church and the school. The roofers are doing work at the base of the southern little spire. This was the first spire to lose its aluminum and wood, then to get rebuilt in metal. They covered seven of its eight sides in copper before they switched to its twin to the north, which was completely covered in copper first because it was easier for the crane to reach it.
