Are there any signs that say "Don't walk on my sidewalk!" That is rather weird! It would be fun to know the story behind it.Nice find!
I do agree with Lowell! It would be fun to know the story!!
I agree there must be a story there!
There's an appealing pattern in the way the pavement stones are arranged.
I like the patterns too, but how interesting...I wonder what kind of town ordinance they had to get around!:)
A proud homeowner or a thumb of the nose at the city authorities?
Nice patterns, story or not.
A good spot. Maybe the house owner has some influence with the local authority.
I am also curious about the story...Looks nice and a bit strange.
I would have kept the cobblestones I think Ciel, there's history in those old stones !
Mystery Lane . . .
Now we are all curious!
A 'private' pavement... intriguing!
that is interesting..i love the patterns! i wonder what the backstory is!
J'aime bien l'idée d'un trottoir privée ! Au moins cette partie était bien preservé.
I like the patterns! You got a beautiful angle in this picture!Léia
It is odd. MB
I think you are right, and they did it nicely!
Interesting. It looks like a carpet on the sidewalk.
Probablement une question de cout... auraient-ils creuse pour la canalisation?Dommage mais bien vu et une bonne photo d'archives.
Odd indeed - they must have some good contacts that allowed them to do this.
Very interesting observation. A special stretch of pavement for a special house.
Someone went to a lot of trouble to change the sidewalk, but I think the cobblestones are every bit as beautiful.
In Connecticut and Florida, that would be odd, because the sidewalks are owned by the city and are uniform. But, in the neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, where I lived for six years, the sidewalks were the responsibility of the landowner, so we went from one brick pattern to concrete to a different brick pattern, etc. Like here.
Very observant! It would be interesting to know the story. If that were here, I'd say some repair work had been done and the same type of cobblestone could no longer be obtained, so the property owner took advantage of making a design statement. :-)~Lindy
