History of the blue and white street tiles in New Orleans: One of my favorite architectural elements in New Orleans is our iconic street tiles. They are beautiful and make our city unique. Encaustic tiles with street names were laid in sidewalks at street corners in New Orleans around the 1920's. The original tiles were made in Alhambra, Spain and many of these tiles are still common in older parts of the city. In later years, other types of tiles were laid on our streets.
