Here at Handyman Blog we love to talk about balustrades (CLICK LINK HERE),
their design, their construction, their layout… so naturally it was hard not to
admire the vintage circular mezzanine balustrade in the lobby of Hill Hall at
the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill when attending a concert this week.
A sturdy example of Victorian Era workmanship with perfect symmetrical balusters
assembled on a continuous circular curve around the entresol opening at the
building’s main Entrance Lobby directly attached to the music auditorium.
There is every reason to believe this handrail has seen continuous service since it was
first installed over a century ago.
