Adding the Gold to the Capitol Dome

During a 1957 renovation of Georgia’s capitol, the idea was proposed that the deteriorated tin-covered dome be replaced by a more attractive and durable surface, to then be covered by a gilding of Georgia gold. Credit for this idea goes to two people: Thomas Bradbury, the architect in charge of renovating the capitol, and Gordon Price, a Dahlonega-born engineer living in Atlanta.

Bradbury, in his original plans for remodeling the capitol, suggested gilding the dome with gold, but to gild only the 16 ribs on the dome and the cupola or smaller dome on which the statue rests. Governor Griffin had initially turned this idea down because of the extra cost for the gold. Price, however, met with Bradbury, state officials, and the Dahlonega Chamber of Commerce, suggesting the possibility that citizens from Dahlonega and Lumpkin County might donate the gold to the state. On April 25, 1958, the chamber voted to make the gold collection a local project, and the state accepted the proposal.

Within a week, 20 ounces of gold had been pledged from citizens of an area which 131 years earlier had been the site of the nation’s first gold rush. Dahlonega Jaycees set May 25 as "Panning Day" to take to the hills and streams to search for gold. Not only was new gold being sought, but a campaign was initiated to seek donations of Dahlonega gold from people who had collected souvenirs of north Georgia gold in earlier days. In addition to the pride of contributing gold for the capitol dome that they would feel, the name of each person who gave gold would be placed on a plaque to be located within the capitol.

Secretary of State Fortson accepted the chairmanship of the gold dome project, which by the end of July had collected the 43 ounces of gold estimated as necessary to cover the dome.

On August 4, 1958, a caravan of seven mule-drawn covered wagons left Dahlonega with the gold contained in a chest that reportedly had belonged to William Few, a Georgia signer of the United States Constitution in 1787. The three-day trip to Atlanta, during which time the wagon train averaged about three miles an hour, reached Atlanta on August 6, 1958. The next day, in ceremonies on the steps of the state capitol, the gold was presented to Governor Griffin. Thereafter the gold was sent to Philadelphia, where it was milled into gold leaf 1/5,000th of an inch thick, or about the thickness of the tinfoil when peeled from a chewing gum wrapper.

Before the gold could be applied to the dome, the dome had to be covered with several coats of asphalt and cement because of the uneven surface of the terra cotta tiles that had been located under the original tin. Then the dome was covered with shingles of monel metal, a gray colored alloy of copper and nickel. These 18-inch square shingles were attached by means of barbed nails, with each shingle secured to the one below it. Finely milled gold leaf was then attached after a coat of sizing was applied to the monel shingles.

Gold for the Price of Silver

Gold for the Price of Silver
Kings Of Convenience – Gold for the Price of Silver
(Beautiful song, beautiful Norwegians, life is better when KoC are on)

If it takes control of your body and soul
Embrace it

If it makes you cry or leaves you wondering why
Don’t turn around, face it
But do turn cold
If they promise you gold…for the price of silver
If it’s chemically made by people you hate
Pinch your arm see if you’re still there

Everything you want is what I’ve got to give you
You just have to let yourself come with me now
Everything you want is what I’ve got to give you
There’s no time to hesitate, come with me now

Let’s go and watch the sun rise.
Let your heart
Run along to the rhythm of your song
Run along to the rhythm of your song
Run along.

Everything you want is what I’ve got to give you
You just have to let yourself come with me now
Everything you want is what I’ve got to give you

There’s no time to hesitate, come with me now
Let’s go and watch the sunrise ….

KoC – Gold in the Air of Summer:
Gold in the air of summer,
you’ll shine like gold in the air of summer.

I have a deep connection with both songs, as when the album was released and when I found that B-side I was diagnosed with an aggressive Nodular Melanoma (the worst kind of the worst type of skin cancer, possibly untreatable, not that I’m negative that’s just how it is) and I was going through the motions in the summer. Me and the sun are even closer than we ever have been, enemies closer right? I also met Erlend Oye at an intimate gig in Manchester that summer so it made it all the sweeter, he drew me an elephant on the album artwork and that did lift my spirits, he’s like a hero of mine.

I also love the idea of letting your heart run along to the rhythm of your song, could be as fast or as slow as you need but it’s a different song a different story to anyone elses, that song would be on a mix CD for my wife.
