Historic District Tile Entryway

    Newer Older

    I'm always noticing art underfoot. I see these types of entryways all over Seattle. Tile or terrazzo work with an embedded address, date, business or personal name. This one in the Clolumbia City historic district is the first I recall seeing with a floral hexegon border.

      That's a bit different.

      That's a really nice one I also love the tile street markers in Ballard.

      Yes, Steffe, it is. The building was on an odd angle to the street and sidewalk.

      Chez Shoes, I was just thinking of those last night when I posted this shot to my blog. I've taken lots of photos of those (and they exist in several other Seattle neighborhoods), and it is fun to see what the original names of the streets were. I'm going to have to take more of those and load it up to my Flickr set called art underfoot, maybe do a series for the blog. Thanks!

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Storefront Tile, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
