January 7-11: Supports are Built

The restoration teams have built interior scaffolding for support, hung heavy plastic sheeting to control dust and plaster infiltration, wrapped the plaster wall corners and wooden banisters, and built a temporary wooden crate to protect the rare 1936 oak Steinway Piano.
