I found some more ironwork in the city today. Okay - there's lots of ironwork in the city! I found some pretty scrolling ironwork in the city today.
This railing is more modern than the piece from last week. The iron is thin, flat, 2-dimensional. Definitely a more modern piece than the last one.
This piece was put in - oh, about 30-40 years ago? It was part of a redesign where they were trying to make the place look "retro". I guess they needed to keep the costs down, though, because this is rolled steel - not handmade.
But still, the time was taken to put in this railing instead of the same ole same ole straight sticks lining the stairway.
You have to appreciate that. Right?
