Facing Bricks

This wall contains facing bricks of houses which have been demolished over time. A pitty that this habbit has been lost, I like the idea to give each house it's own identity..

This facing brick says Swan Castle, as you can see the bricks used to be painted.

In total I have six I want to show you..

I agree: these are very beautiful examples of work that is no longer valued enough.

I look forward to the others you have ready ...
