thank you. it looks like original wrought iron porch railing.
are they any pictures of those iron pickets?
Mr. Stewart, please check your caps lock key.
THE ORIGINAL SQUIRE WHIPPLE BOWSTRINGS HAD RAILINGS IF THEY HAD SIDEWALKS. THESE WERE IRON PICKET RAILINGS. BRIDGES IN THE MORE URBAN AREAS HAD CANTILEVERED SIDEWALKS.
Railing on bowstrings
I also have to do something
Wire cable was not good
Perhaps Wooden railing is Best
It was good enough in the 40s
Tough question but one coming up for me because I know that a bridge that has had nothing for 130 years will certainly be forced to have some kind of railing system.
This replica bridge was done right
It surely belongs on this site
No known criteria would this bridge fail
'cept of course for that modern rail
