    Historic street furniture

    I am not sure if this should go here but it looked as good a place as any. I am in the process of trying to purchase iron street furniture (benches, trash cans,smoking urns). There are limited number of companies on the internet and I am wondering if anyone out there has had success with a particular company. Any input on street furniture would be appreciated. Thanks.

    This might sound way off and gay (sorry gays), but are the any local arc-welding artisans in town? Could bid it out or chase grant money.

    I checked on a place I remember that did nostalgic street lights but they are not there any more. I thought maybe they would have expanded by now. Guess not.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Well thank you.

    I think I may have found what I am looking for the company is Cast Iron out of England. They have some really beautiful stuff and I am awaiting a quote but I hear they comparable to many of the companies here in the States.

    Here's a good source (I subscribe to Traditional Building magazine) and highly recommend it as a source for design information (mostly ads, but ads for good stuff)
