Entrance tile.  From the Victorian era through the mid 20th century, entranceway flooring often had signage.  This is a charming example of mosaic.


A steep and narrow stairway leads up to a foyer full of 19th century charm.  There is a tin ceiling and this thickly moulded doorway has a transom.  Transoms were a great way to disperse interior light through Victorian floorplans, which were split up into multiple rooms.
