Thursday Doors: 609 South 1st Street, San Jose, CA

This is the door to a store that once sold ceramic tiles that were made by a local artisan. I regret that I cannot remember what the store was called. The building was empty for some time and half of the tile store is now occupied by Raw Studios. This lovely pink door, however, is still in place.

Underneath the windows to this building are more of the decorative tiles that were made and sold here.

In its heyday, and until only a few years ago, the store was stacked with tiles. I took this picture in 2017 when the store was still in business.

Here is a screenshot of a more recent view from Google Maps which shows how the tiles at the front spread across what are now two separate stores.
