It has been awhile since I last took a shot of the Peace Tower from this covered entrance at the East Block.
The West Block, meanwhile, is slowly emerging from the scaffolding that has enveloped it for a long while. The windows are not yet replaced, but the stone is clean, the sand blasting process clearing off the effects of pollution. This is part of the ongoing work on the Hill for rehabilitation of the buildings.
Contrast the above with this shot of an arch on the Centre Block. You can see the dark marks- that's the effect of pollution over time, and has to be removed when the Centre Block gets its work done next.
The status quo is even more obvious on the East Block, which will be entombed beneath scaffolding in the coming years. The entire process, by the time it's said and done, will still take over a decade.
