Garden District Home, Wrought Iron Plenty

 

The Double Gallery on this Garden District home has more wrought detail than most homes in New Orleans.  The Wrought Iron Trend arrived in the Garden District in the 1850’s as it made its way from Europe.  The decorative aspect is taken to another level in New Orleans.  The Spanish Artchitecture  influence is evident.  The details can be amazing on the porches, fences, and balconies….

This is a gallery rather than a balcony since it is supported to the ground.  Galleries thus tend to have cover and are wider than balconies.
