1297-Metal School – Costa Rica

This school building was manufactured in Belgium in the late 1800s and brought to Costa Rica as a numbered kit building. Each piece of the building is numbered and was assembled like a lego kit. It is made entirely of steel with no insulation and no thickness to the walls. It’s like a numbered ship kit except this one has been here for over one hundred years.
