Historic Cast Iron Design Galleries
We’ve collected some of the best examples of cast iron design we’ve found in our hometown, Richmond, Virginia and New York City. Richmond has several historic buildings from before the Civil War with truly unique gothic style cast iron posts and railings designed by architects for specific buildings. And the images from New York City show the amazing use of cast iron for vault lights and other cast iron and glass prism stair treads, risers and panels. No other city in the world has such extensive use of cast iron and glass prism panels.
