Within the sixth and longest standing courthouse in Dallas, affectionately called Old Red. Built in 1892 this imposing structure has been fully restored and now is the home of a fascinating two floor museum. Bringing this staircase back to its original glory was among the greatest challenges of the restoration process.

    What a find! Wonderful composition. I can't help but muse on the excellent quality of the workmanship, before all the 'modern' advances in metal working. Amazing.

    Can only imagine the sound of toe and heel plates on past centuries shoes, running up and down this grand stairway. Love that highly polished steel encased within the wrought iron. What a find, Deb!
