Newspaper Items of interest---1883

About the most unsightly architectural exerescenes(sic) we have ever seen are the iron cages set up around the roof of the State House in Baton Rouge. They are neither ornamental nor useful but positively disfigure the State House. We notice in this connection an interview in the last "City Item" with a prospective Solon, in which he says he will offer a bill in the next Legislature to have these cages taken down, (Ascension Democrat).
