Description from Schoolhouse Electric
In the 1920s Portland City Commissioner Asbury Barbur campaigned to develop a standardized street naming and house numbering system. During the Great Depression the planning commission adopted a plan for uniformity and the city paid for and installed white and black tile house numbers throughout the city. Many of those original sturdy, standard black-and-white tile numerals remain on houses and buildings today. These timeless hand-painted house numbers are made in Portland once again and we are excited to offer these for homes and buildings near and far.
