Red Brick

I grew up with red brick houses.

Had I been born on the Prairies, I suppose I would not have had the exposure to the warmth and regular patterns of brick walls.  Brick is rare out there.

New home construction these days uses almost no brick, opting instead for other materials.  The brick facade (front wall brick, the rest siding) seen on some houses is the ultimate in fraudulent design.

Is brick laying a dying art?
