It's not quite cobblestone, but this was the best I could find in Sarasota for today's theme day. One block of Rawls Street in downtown Sarasota is covered with these bricks. Turns out, this is how the street looked way back in the day. There was a time, though, when it was in vogue to pave over brick streets with asphalt. (Brick streets became unpopular due to the bumpy, uneven ride.) As I recall, a couple of years ago, residents near Rawls requested the street be restored to its original appearance. So, a weekend before Christmas, residents, with the help of city workers, laid the bricks. To me, this small portion of brick street makes a cute neighborhood even more charming.
