‘ Doorstep Welcome‘ : “From the doorstep to the street”
Victorian tiled porches featured by the front door many of the houses in Langham Road, Carlingford and Graham Road N15. Visitors arriving on a doorstep of a house in our area, can observe many decorative Victorian tiles that adorn the porch area either side of the front door. Popular in many 19th Century Victorian houses, these decorative tiles provide a ‘doorstep welcome’ to the visitor, aswell as reflecting a sense of pride in the property.
Can visitors and residents feel a sense of pride if there was a similar welcome using Victorian tiles within the street vernacular? Possible locations could include new entrances (gateways) to area, street name signs, or breakpoints. Any suggestions welcome.
