This beautiful tile pattern is my St. Petersburg neighbor’s front porch. It originates
with the house, built in 1925. Isn’t it so fine? Jordon, my neighbor,
built the porch swing. I’ve seen several houses down here with these
hand tiled porches with no particular rhyme or reason to the shapes;
they also seem to fit together perfectly in the end. But I have to say,
Jordon’s color is the best I’ve seen.
These are the bricks in our street, also from the 1920’s The whole
neighborhood consists of true Arts and Craft Bungalows and there is a
lot of pride in maintaining the ambience of the times. When streets
have pops, city ordinance requires that pavers are replaced with pavers
and the hex block sidewalks are replaced with hex blocks. I think there
must have been a nice rhythm and pattern to life around here in the
1920’s and 30’s.
