Thanks to all who commented or had a look. In the hours since this tragedy it’s become obvious that the cathedral can be restored. I will take year -- Macron says 5 years — but it will be worth the wait.

I immediately recalled how I was overwhelmed by the majesty and history of this ancient cathedral when I visited it on a spring afternoon in 2003. Extending a business trip by a day, I wandered the streets of Paris with my Leica iiif RD and Summicron 50/2 Collapsible, alternately shooting tribute-x and Portra 400. I had the color neg film loaded when I stopped in the cathedral and captured a few images as best I could, given the faded mirror of my Leica and the dim lighting. Yesterday, I wondered what had become of those images. I found an envelope that contained the negatives and camera store prints and scanned a few of the negatives. Today, I assembled a small gallery.
