Construction crews use a crane to return a refurbished cupola to the top of the former St. Vibiana's Cathedral Wednesday morning August 29 2007 in downtown Los Angeles. Eleven years ago, the Catholic archdiocese started dismantling the old St. Vibiana's Cathedral after it was damaged in the Northridge earthquake. Conservationists sued, the church and stopped the demolition, but not before the cupola was removed.
