decorative tiles

This tiled "fountain" is in the entryway of a Spanish style building near Lake Merritt.  The building was closed when I walked by and I had to stick my camera through the wrought iron gate to get this shot.  I love the old tiles that decorate so many of our buildings.

  1. You are so right, what makes Oakland so fabulous downtown is the old tiles and terra cotta, so nice when urbanization actually misses an area once in a while, and these beauties get left for others to enjoy.
