The photos below depict various stages of the All Souls renovation project, from the initial assessment of areas in need of upgrading and repair, through the design phase, the congregational meetings where key decisions were made, and finally, the work itself. From top to bottom, they are roughly in chronological order.
Most of these pictures were taken by Jennifer Bolick, a member of the Comprehensive Assets Planning Team and a contributor to this website. Others were taken by Katie Loughary, All Souls’ executive director; Bob Bonner (the refurbished bell); and Meredith Higgins-Hargrave (of her husband, Tom Hargrave, ascending the 15th St. ramp).
