Salt Lake Temple Prepared for Anniversary

Scaffolding surrounds a portion of the Salt Lake Temple as workers prepare the building for its one-hundredth anniversary on 6 April 1993. Projects include spraying the temple exterior with pressurized water to root out stains and replacing a few deteriorating stones with new stones quarried from the same area as the original granite. Workers will also remove leftover steel shims left by the original builders and will replace damaged hard mortar with a softer mortar. The work is scheduled to be completed by October 1992.
