Library Staff

Cast-iron architecture was a phase of building in vogue in the late 19th century, as a way to protect the city from the ravages of fire that destroyed sections of downtown in earlier years.
Today, the blocks in downtown Portland nearest the waterfront still feature buildings of this construction.
