Tile Of Two Cities

Throughout the years, tile has been a popular subject of the Wednesday Where Is It (WWII) pictures on Edhat. We have shown pictures of mosaic tiles, painted tiles, and tiles that mysteriously appear in different locations around town. But, up until yesterday, we had never shown a picture of the cool tiles found in front of the Jimmy's Oriental Gardens building on E Canon Perdido Street.
And, although the restaurant and watering hole has been closed since 2006, it seems that many of us still remember the place well. The tiles could very well be the most famous tiles in town.
Sixty Edhat subscribers correctly identified the location of yesterday's picture.
Neal Graffy, historian extraordinaire, was one of those subscribers. And, not only did he send in his answer, but he also sent in an update of an article he wrote four years ago about the historic building that housed the historic restaurant, which was sadly closing its doors at the time.

And, since Neal has taken care of the who, what, where, and why of our WWII photo, that lets us jump right ahead to a play-by-play description of how the Edhat Dog selected this week's t-shirt winner.
The Dog was a little bit bummed on Wednesday. You see, although she still fearlessly bounds into the cold ocean for sticks, balls, and special toys, lately she has been a bit apprehensive with regard to water. In the old days she would charge the garden hose, and she enjoyed being sprayed directly into her mouth with the high-pressured setting. Nowadays however, she doesn't like the hose. And, she doesn't like rain, either.
So on Wednesday she was bummed about the rain and bummed that there were no chicken scraps. But her gloomy day took a turn for the better when the dedicated staff of edhat.com showed up with some jerky treats and a contest to decide.
In round one, she had to pick between six treats. For decision-making purposes, the only treat that mattered was the first one, in order to advance one group of ten to the next round. But of course, she ate them all. She showed similar diligence when she picked the top treat from the final ten. Not only did she pick the winner, but she dispatched the also-rans, too.
At the end of the day, there was only one Edhat subscriber standing. And, that subscriber is named, Behunt. Behunt wins an Edhat t-shirt, pickupable at Santa Barbara Arts.

Might I add -- as a previous winner of an Edhat t-shirt -- the t-shirts are of fine quality, and the staff at Santa Barbara Arts very friendly!
