What an amazing sight! Renowned for its striking architectural interior, the Peabody Stack Room in Baltimore contains five tiers of ornamental cast-iron balconies, which rise dramatically to the skylight 61 feet above the floor…

… The Peabody Library building, which opened in 1878, was designed by Baltimore architect Edmund G. Lind, in collaboration with the first provost, Dr. Nathaniel H. Morison.The ironwork was fabricated by the Bartlett-Robbins Company. The architecture of the Peabody Library is discussed in James D. Dilts and Catharine F. Black’s Baltimore’s Cast-Iron Buildings & Architectural Ironwork (1991).
