Earlier today the cupola of the stunning St. Vibiana Catedral was rightly replaced after a lengthy renovation.
I remember seeing a Cornerstone Theatre production at St. Vibiana's years ago, post-quake/pre-construction. In the corner of the parking lot sat the cupola, damaged and unloved. Now it’s been returned to the top of the building. Fellow blogger and friend Ed (View From A Loft) spent this afternoon at the re-dedication ceremony and has posted a fabulous flickr slideshow.
He also tagged the inside of the cupola with the names of just a few of those who chronicle Downtown, the 3rd bloggiest neighborhood in the US. Yes I said neighborhood and yes I somehow made the list with others that I highly respect. I’m honored to be a part of this odd L.A. History.

Last minute update: Ed (again) has posted this link to the LA Times compete with a video of the event...it kind of reminds me of a life size game of Operation.
