My father sometimes used to make wrought iron work, so I’ve always appreciated the hard work that goes into it. How many hours, I wonder, went into creating these two masterpieces?

The gateway at the prefecture in Tours can be seen today. It originally came from the Abbey at Beaumont-lès-Tours and was classed as a historical Monument in 1917. 

 This gateway at the Château des Perrais is still there too, although the Chateau is now a private Catholic school.
