The Cathedral for the Dallas Diocese, formery Sacred Heart, now Catedral Santuario de Guadalupe, was once quite different from how it is today, especially on the interior.  The former marble altar rails were removed and parts of them were used as curbs in parking lots for the Cathedral and other locations, the glorious High Altar was removed and, presumably, destroyed, etc.  Similar things happened around the country.  One diocese, Orlando, is seeking to restore some of the former glory to its cathedral, as shown below.
