Mosaic fragment in Gloucester – do you know where it is?

The other day I (almost literally) stumbled across this bit of mosaic  half-hidden under the asphalt on a road in Gloucester.  It is the last thing I expected – it looks like a little piece of Pompeii or some other ancient Italian city came over with the immigrants and decided to take up residence. Not many American cities have mosaic on (or under) the streets.  I wonder if there is more mosaic hiding under the asphalt?   And I wonder if this is common knowledge, or if it is something that most Gloucester residents never noticed?

Do you know where it is?
