image 1Decorative external features such as Tile Hung Walls were popular on the Arts & Crafts home and then continued into the 1920's and 1930's traditional homes. The clay tiles could be produced in different shapes and colours and hung from wooden battens to create a pattern on gables, bays and roofs of porches.
