wrought iron railings in Chicago

I’ve driven down 103rd Street in Chicago hundreds, maybe thousands of times. On Sunday I was driving west between Western Avenue and Pulaski Road and noticed the large amount of homes that have wrought iron railings and porch supports on their front porch. Unfortunately traveling by car allows for only a certain level of study of the variety from home to home. All were rather simple designs, but the subtle variety of shapes and forms were (was?) interesting. Analysis of such detailing has previously escaped me.
