Dali Sidewalk (1)

These smallish paving stones (about 15 cm on a side) are cast cement. They can be found in the aincient town of Dali in Yunnan province southwest China. The main pedestrian mall of the town (which has been reconstructed several times over the centuries) has lovely smooth brick paving, but these can be found if you go a block or so away from the shops and up into the neighborhood.

I'm guessing that these were produced about 1980. Anyone know anything about the history of paving stones? Drop me a line if you have thoughts on the subject.
