It's Crazy

Toynbee-ish Tile

Found in the pavement at Cherokee and Pennsylvania on the south side, a short walk from my daughter's home. It's made with the same technique as Toynbee tiles, strips of linoleum pressed into the asphalt. (Well, there are a few more steps.) It looks very new.

There used to be a few genuine Toynbee tiles downtown. A few have been paved over and at least one has been torn out and stolen.

The old roman way of advertising but what are they recommending here. The state you must reach to understand society perhaps.

This one's certainly colourful.

Here all the cobblestone streets have been paved over. There is a strip on Exchange St. A relic of a past.
