Subway tile is a style of glazed ceramic tile originally used on the walls of the New York City subway stations in the early 20th century. The charming 3″ x 6″ tiles covered the walls of subway platforms and allowed for easy cleaning and graffiti removal. Today, you know subway tile for its timelessness and versatility. But how do you know if your subway tile is authentic?
These characteristics are a classic example of the principle “form follows function,” inherent in sanitary ceramic tilework of the Victorian period.
