1924 vs. present day -- Sanctuary and Baldachin

Designed by Emmanuel Louis Masqueray, the sanctuary is the focal point of the cathedral's interior. After creating the rough sketch, Masqueray passed away and construction was handed off to his friend and famous architect, Whitney Warren. He is best known for his work on Grand Central Station in NY.
The grand high altar is surrounded by a structure called a baldachin which is supported by its six marble pillars. Completed in its entirety by 1927, this piece has been a stunning display of the art & architecture featured in the cathedral.
