I've never tried to link a photo, so I don't know how well this is going to show up.

 

I have run across many business which have tile entryways with the name of the business or former business. Is there a category for this? If so which one is it? If not would it be worth discussing? I don't want to be lead on it, I just want to have a place to put this floor.

 

The photo is from (WMHFCD) Farmers Bank - McCormick, SC - U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

It's looking pretty big, wish I knew how to fix that one...

If it has a picture instead of just words maybe the mosaic category but other than that I don't think so.

I love these. I agree about trying the Mosaic category. Is the building on the National Register of Historic Places? Maybe this is a new category idea. . . .

I've seen a few of these, most of which were at the entrance to older apartment buildings in the downtown area. I was never sure if they fit in the mosaic category. I guess I've just got so many other pictures, that I've never put the work into it, to test whether it would be accepted or not. They are pretty cool, IMHO.

You guessed correct, this is the entry at the Farmers Bank, WMHFCD. Now the McCormick Messenger office. I've come across a lot of these over the past few years. Unfortunately since I wasn't really thinking about Waymarking at the time, I don't have pictures or locations.

 

Is it catetory worthy?

I don't see a requirement that the tiles form a picture to be considered a mosaic.

 

From the category description:

 

- the juxtaposition of these pieces form something recognizable (characters, animals, landscapes, forms...) or simply decorate a construction, a statue, a fountain...

 

With Characters being a key word.

According to Outspoken1, leader of Mosaics, this is a mosaic.

 

So if you are visiting FARMERS BANK (WMHFCD) now the McCormick Messenger Newspaper, you might want to try to catch them during normal business hours to pick up a two-fer at this site.
