Joe Offer BS: Notre Dame Cathedral is on fire - April 2019 (100* d) RE: BS: Notre Dame Cathedral is on fire - April 2019 17 Apr 19


I've always admired the spire that was destroyed in this week's fire. I had assumed it was part of the original structure, but it wasn't. It was built on the 19th century of oak covered with lead, to replace a 500-yr-old spire that was in disrepair.
I wonder what the replacement will be - probably not oak and lead.
Anybody know where I can find good close-up pictures of the spire? The one at Wikipedia is quite good, but I'd like even more detail. Is that a bell inside the spire?
