I visited the when the courthouse was under revision, restoration or rebuild; depending on your point of view.
The 1957 addition was removed entirely during that restoration, and the clock tower (removed in 1945) was restored to its rightful place. All this happened in 2010.

Because of the construction work, I did not take any photos of the courthouse during my 2010 visit. And this drove me back to at least get one good shot.
Please visit the link below for photos of the courthouse in 1939, 1945, 2007 and 2012.
