From Wikipedia:

"Lead was discovered in the Joplin Creek Valley before the Civil War, but only after the war did significant development take place. While Joplin was first settled for lead mining, zinc, often referred to as "jack", was the most important mineral resource. As railroads were built to connect Joplin to major markets in other cities, it was on the verge of dramatic growth. By the start of the 20th century, the city was becoming a regional metropolis. Construction centered around Main Street, with many bars, hotels, and fine homes nearby. Joplin's three-story "House of Lords" was its most famous saloon, with a bar and restaurant on the first floor, gambling on the second, and a brothel on the third. Trolley and rail lines made Joplin the hub of southwest Missouri. As the center of the "Tri-state district", it soon became the lead- and zinc-mining capital of the world." See Wiki for more info.

These tiles are reclaimed from Joplin's Main St, 1501 South to be precise. Still a modern trolley stop right across the street. 

The pictures of the 2 tiles are the 2 tiles you will receive. These are rough and best suited for an art project. The ones for use as a reclaimed ceiling are much nicer. The other pictures show just a small part of what has yet to be pulled. The last picture shows a custom ceiling we sold. If you need a quote on a custom ceiling, please let us know, we can pull what you need and lay it out on the ground for your approval. No job too large (up to 3,000 square feet) or too small.

These tiles are in fair reclaimed/salvage condition and will have original nail holes, dents, rust, be discolored, may contain lead paint and were cut but hand so they might not be perfectly straight. Each of these two tiles measure approximately 24" x 24". 

We combine shipping.
