Enclosing the platform: 4 square cast-iron panels with a pattern of circles and radiating bars between slender columns supporting the shallow pitched roof . Deep eaves with ornate wooden edging, twentieth century roof felting, a raised vent at the apex of the roof, and an elaborate scrolled finial with a gold crown.
