Woven Bricks

I am a big fan of carved brickwork and love this woven look that I found on one of the wonderful old homes in the Annex neighbourhood. It is nice to see that the wall has been so well maintained including chicken wire to keep pigeons out of those little arched spaces up on the left top of the pic.

Very nice looking. You don't see many like that anymore.

This is very cool. I like it a lot and have never seen such before. One needs lots of chicken wire to deter pigeons! :)

You make us pay attention and see details that maybe we wouldn't be able to notice by ourselves. ;-)

That's a work of art!

A fine shot of this novel but very appealing brickwork. I like it.

I don't think I've ever seen this brickwork style before Pat, it does look pretty amazing!

What gorgeous craftsmanship -- that woven look on brick is something I've never seen before; it is beautiful.

Yeah, glad they're keeping the pigeons away (the color is too pretty to be discolored).

This is from a house? I would love to see the whole house if you ever get a chance. Nice designs!

Ca 1900 I'd guess. A Furness building?
