Street in "old" Porto

This picture shows the tapestry that I have recentry finished. It mesures 45cmx95cm and I want it to depict the feel of a gentle old street in my home town, Porto, Portugal, seen from within a shop. The tiles, in the old houses still exhiste, and the blue and white tiles were quite comum. Porto is changing a lot and many of these old houses are now derelect.
