Wrought iron spiral staircase

Singapore has such a nice mix of architecture and unlike earlier years, conservation has helped to restore and preserve some of these heritage places.

I have always loved the spiral staircases of some old shophouses built during the colonial years but iron wrought ones are quite rare in Singapore. Chanced upon one just the other day behind a shophouse at Veerasamy Road. It reminded me of some of the exhibits of iron works on display at the V and A museum in London as these were very popular European architectural pieces during the early 1900s.
