cast iron baseboard heater

I need a 7 foot section of 7 inch high old/used/antique baseboard radiator. I had a section crack this winter. Do you know of anyone that might have something like that. My house was renovated in the 1950, built in 1896.

    Bummer, I have a 3 family full of that stuff, I thought it was immortal! Did it freeze? Have you looked at any of the "architectural recycler" shops?

    So you need 3 - 2 ft sections and a 1 foot piece or a
    4 ft section a 2 ft section and a 1 ft section
    look to the right of the rust mark thats the seam between the sections
    check Craigslist there is usually some around
