Iron of New Orleans, photo heavy

Recommended Posts

Was in NOLA for All Hallows’ Eve. These are of and around the French Quarter area. Most is cast and of what seem to be only a handful of artist from the repeating styles. Also a pic of the blacksmith shop now a bar that survived 2 of the major fires. Some ceiling panels with corrosion holes. Some hinges, and a manhole cover with Vulcan stamped on it.

"Only a handful of artists"  for cast iron probably they sourced from the same foundries.  The "artistic" stuff was being sold by the yard 150 years ago...Victorian cast iron could be quite ornate. When I visited Coalbrookdale in the UK, I went to a museum there of a company that did ornate cast iron items for home and garden.

Wrought iron could be done locally by smiths with more or less artistic talent.
