Day 9

Posted by: Beau Phillips in Barely Legible, Lantern Preservation Project

Today we began to pressure wash the underside of the observation deck.

Pressure Washing Underneath the Overservation Deck

In preparation for painting, and filling and repairing any cracks, Worth Contractors began to pressure wash the deck today. Yesterday, they set up a pulley system to hoist their tools, a spider (which is a basket that is suspended from the observation deck), and of course a safety rope.

Below workers hoist a bucket containing their tools.

Thats Not Rain
