Even more cladding

A chilly start to the day.

Yes….. That’s frost on the boats!  Oh….. It’s the moon… not the sun (pre-dawn photo).

Now these homes interested me.  Initially I thought the upper cladding was untreated iron or steel tiles.

The plaque above the door gives the date as 1876, however the lower floor brickwork looks quite modern.

After staring harder at the upper cladding we decided the tiles are probably made of clay.

The fact that the tiles on the corners of the house curve at 90 degrees initially made me doubt the “clay” theory and revert to metal tiles.  However Jan assures me it’s possible to produce right angle clay tiles.  And I know better than to argue. And of course she is right!
