Ironwork: Gate detail 529 Dumaine

This gate may have jumpstarted my decision to map the ironwork in the Quarter. I don’t think the gold detail was there when I first noticed this gate (although I may be wrong) but I was startled when I saw the Pontalba scroll on this other building. I am doing research on the commercial history of Jackson Square and know that the Baroness lived near to Jackson Square while she built the Pontalbas, and I wonder if this might be where she lived.  I’ll post when more information comes my way..529Dumaine4529Dumaine3529Dumaine2529Dumaine!
