    Metal storefronts

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I recently stumbled upon this neat page about pressed metal storefronts that includes turn of the century catalogs for download.

    I always liked metal cornices and facades. I think it's a wonderful and easy way to make an otherwise plain building into sometihng unique. Does anyone still make any of this stuff? All I ever see are very plain neoclassical moldings reproduced, never the elaborate stuff seen here. You'd think there'd be a market for it.
