Tile still underfoot at the Pike Place Market

My tile in the Arcade of the Pike Place Market is still going strong, if a little dirty (I scraped some gum off this tile before taking the photo!). The tiles, found throughout the main level , were originally sold and installed in the mid-80’s to raise funds for Market preservation and restoration. Over time, they have become such a part of the texture of the Market that people hardly notice them. This tile was purchased for me as a birthday present by my sister in 1985. We have both always been been big fans of the Market. I have had the very good fortune to work in the Market for 27 years, first at Campagne Restaurant then at Le Pichet.
