Historic Birmingham

The Iron Age Building built in 1886 is just one of the last two buildings with a cast iron façade left  in our city. Located on 20th Street North, I've had a fascination with the cast iron columns for  along time. I'm more than a little sad that they have painted these wonderful rusting columns with a coat of white paint, since this was taken. Progress?

Not quite progress, but such is sometimes life. I like them too.

Historic for sure.
