Sometime this year a big roof awning went up over (what looks like) part of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
I can't believe that this got past the old Status Quo agreements about the church.
You see the ladder under the window on the left, for instance?
It was placed on a ledge over the entrance sometime in the 19th century has remained there ever since because of a dispute over who has the authority to take it down.
Does anyone know who put up the awning and why?
UPDATE: I think I found a lead. See Sept. 10 post.
UPDATE 2: Someone here told me the roof-thing is not quite over the Holy Sepulchre, which makes sense, considering the strength of the status quo.
BEST UPDATE!: The answer to the mystery is from Tom Powers!
