Cast Iron or Wrought Iron ?

Original post 10 February 2020

The gate and fence of this 1892 #QueenAnneStyle terrace pair on #GreyStreetStKilda seems to have both ! The gate appears to be actual wrought iron, with curled square bars, joined by those ties in the middle – or it might just be cast iron imitating wrought iron – which the balustrade panels above definitely are doing, you can see the joins running through the ‘ties’. Fascinating.
