Tiled Entryways Part III

Since I began shooting these tiled entryways, I now find myself running into them all over the neighborhood. This green and white beauty, almost serves as a welcome mat to a private residence, while the two under the cut provide the addresses of businesses. It’s a shame that details like this are considered relics of the past.

    Many of the Italian immigrants that settled in South Philly were master craftsmen. This is a nice series– thanks, Tina!

    Thanks Karen, that would account for some of the houses on our block having gorgeous tiled vestibules. We had a handpainted mural in ours – which, at some point – I’ll post photos.

    No you don’t, unfortunately.
