Sometime in the early to mid-1980’s the Toynbee tiler made a trip to Brazil, Argentia and Chile, laying tiles in Rio, Buenos Aires and Santiago. These were the tiles that made a lot of people stop and take the mystery seriously. There’s something about an international mystery that’s a lot more intriguing than one restricted to the northern and eastern United States.
The fact that the Santiago tile contained a Philadelphia address… the only clue known of their origins for years, only made the mystery that much more interesting.
A couple days ago, these pictures and videos appeared from sunny Buenos Aires. It’s great to see that at least a couple of the tiles are still around.
