ABC Wednesday: I is for Iron


I've always liked wrought iron fences and gates.

This wrought iron fence is in front of the Imperial Building in Durham, NC.

I've read that steel has replaced iron in modern railways but iron is still sometimes found in old tracks. I don't know if the one below is iron or steel but it looks old.

The only Iron I know much about is the one I use to Iron clothes. Nice post for "I" day today.

Love your iron for the letter “i.” For me iron means the little green pills I have to take 3 times a day, day after day after day. I like you iron lots more than mine! The photos are beautiful and the ironwork lovely. genie

Well Wanda, I'm with you, - I kind of like ironing, - it has a nice comforting scent as your mind wanders and everything gets smoothed out and neat and tidy.

I like wrought iron too...

One could say that iron was very instrumental in building this world! Yes, I too, am a big fan of wrought iron.

We still do a lot of gates in Aluminum with Popular Iron Look. Great photos. Will have to check out that building in Durham some time!
