The awning; it’s been around since ancient Egyptian and Syrian times! Even the Romans used awnings in the Coliseum to protect audiences attending gladiator bouts and other festivities! The history of the awning is quite interesting and involves the evolution of the types of fabrics and frames we use.
By the early-19th century, awnings became popular and many homes and businesses utilized these shade structures. Fabrics like linen and canvas were used and the frames were made from cast iron posts. Most of the time, these awnings were fixed in place. However, by the latter half of the 19th century, people could retract their awnings.
