Revisiting a Princeton Porcelain Bathroom

One of KEEP Yalecrests first blog posts was a collage of original bathroom tiles from Princeton Park local historic district  https://keepyalecrest.org/our-work/  .During the Princeton annual December progressive dinner party one resident unveiled their newly remodeled bathroom. They retained their original tile and complemented it with additional and incredible tile work. The art of tile laying is truly apparent. The collage shows the yellow and black original tile; middle of collage third down from top.

The yellow tile band that capped the top of the decorative black and yellow tile had to be removed and is now topped by the black tile.img_7901

The previously untiled arched shower is now a work of art; proving tile laying is a master craft.

Tile work in the 1920’s and 30’s was a selling point for Yalecrest homes; below is an ad from Albert Toronto who designed and built several homes in Princeton Park.
