CHF Talk - Cast iron in South Africa with Nicolette Duckham

5th Jun, 2024
Online event

This talk from Nicolette Duckham discusses the use of cast iron. It became a distinctive feature of much South African architecture in the 19th century as it was exported from industrial powerhouses in places such as Scotland to distant corners of the British Empire at the time. Much still survives today and has endured falling out of fashion and use to become popular once more. It is preserved in many forms, including as decoration on domestic, commercial and institutional buildings, as well as on its own in products such as fountains, bandstands, staircases, benches and lamp posts.
