    scaffolding tent removed

    The cocoon or tent that covered the Oregon Pioneer during the re-gilding process is held then cut free from the scaffolding, a section at a time. It couldn't just be cut and left to drop because these were very large sheets of reinforced plastic and who knows where they might land and what mischief they might find.
