A New Tile

House of Hades Tile 10th & Locust 1

I heard there was a new House of Hades tile (to me, anyway) in front of Left Bank Books at 10th and Locust so I went to check it out. It's in the traditional Toynbee tile colors with no picture border (like some of these).

If you have never seen one of these it's hard to imagine the scale and location in the street. The bottom two pictures give you some idea.

One of St. Louis' original Toynbee tiles has been stolen, the one between Starbucks and Macy's at 6th and Olive. Vandalism, I say, more private interest over public good. Which reminds me, tomorrow is election day.

on en trouve dans New York ?
Vandalisme assez incompréhensible.
La France regarde les elections USA par tous les bouts, on a le droit a des centaines de documentaires, si la France votait Obama gagnerait avec une tres grosse avance.

We don't have any of these in Hartford. Late to the party again!

Does the city remove these or just ignore them?
