Historic District Tile Entryway

I often notice art underfoot as I'm walking and see these types of entryways all over Seattle. Some are tile with mosaic dates, addresses, names of businesses, art tiles and designs, and others are terrazzo or cement with embedded bronze letters, numeral, and artwork.. This one is in Seattle's Columbia City historic district and is the first I recall seeing with a floral border.

I so much love to find these 'artifacts' from a time when people really cared about the art they created for public places. Maybe that's still true, but many modern creations don't appeal to me, but this old one does.

I notice these all the time too. This is an especially nice border!
