Ironwork and Verandahs

A few years ago I was looking for fretwork or ironwork, to use in an art quilt I was making. It was about New Orleans so I looked on the internet for photos that were appropriate. But I hadn't realised that our very own Dunedin has many excellent examples of ironwork. Here are a few photos I have taken of places near where I am staying on Great King Street:

Some great designs for future use I'm sure!


Verandahs Adelaide said...

I like the old style verandahs. They are so functional at the same time they add much character to a home/ building.

I agree - beautiful artwork that says a lot about the people living in the place.
