Yellow brick house
B is for BRICK
Brick is a common construction material in south-central Ontario. Although many of the older farmhouses here were made of yellow brick (the colour of the clay found in our area)...
Red brick house
some of the older homes are red.

Bricks are also made of concrete. The church's brick may be coloured concrete, which is much harder than clay.

South of the border (the Canadian border, that is), nineteenth-century builders must have found clay plentiful too.

I think brick is really lovely no matter what colour it is.
Love to look at different types of houses. I live the red bricks, although the yellow ones are great as well.

Around here yellow bricks are known as "Cambridge bricks" as they used to be made around here, elsewhere in Britain red brick is more common. Although our yellow brick looks very smart when new it seems to be more affected by pollution and soon weathers to a dirty grey. All the examples you've shown look very smart.
Lovely series of images, EG! I tend to love the brick buildings more than others.. Have a happy day!
I like the idea of bricks being made out of indigenous materials, giving the buildings in the region a sense of identity.
These samples of brick buildings are beautiful...it's the architectural design I like!...:)JP
so fancy. i love all the curlie q's. so cool!! i enjoy the fancy-ness. ( :
Concrete bricks? Who knew!
I like the brick, but I really love the windows you captured! I've never heard of concrete bricks..but I imagine they would be super strong.
I've always loved brick structures. Here, though, the brick is often a facade - over wood or plasterboard.
And I remember when we lived in Scottsdale some of the new houses were crumbling - they used Mexican brick which didn't stand up to the weather.
love the pictures
I love the brick farmhouses in Ontario. They are classic. You found some wonderful examples of brick.
i love the windows on the first photo. i did not know they make bricks out of concrete.. learn something new every day.
I like this series very much EG. Neat architecture, windows and the archway in the last photo and the diamond shaped windows shown beyond the other window. Great photos!
You have shown us a nice collection of pretty windows as well as brick. I am always happy to see unusual windows.
beautiful details on these!
The details in these shots are quite lovely. I think my favourite shot is the church.
I love old brick buildings. They have such character.
Oh, wonderful detail indeed, EG! And all the buildings do have their own character!! Terrific captures for the day as always! Hope your week is going well!! Enjoy!
So that is where the brick came from that leads to the Wizard of Oz.
We lived in a 130 year old house once and we loved it. Brick can last forever.
The red brick house is so pretty.
Nicely photographed and presented!
Have a Beautiful Day.
Something I see every day ... and I admit I notice the beauty ... but don't pause to honor it. And not *only* the wonder of brick.
Thank you for this beautiful reminder!
I think brick is so beautiful. My Mother in her later years lived in a brownish brick house---it was very nice. The people she sold the house to covered the brick with wood and boy did it change the very appearance of the house. Weird!
Such neat subjects for the theme. Great shots all.
I favor the red brick. Wonderful images!
Here we have only red bricks . I like the style of brick houses.
I love brick houses. :)
The bricks are quite lovely in your pics, EG!
Fascinating!! I love what I learn blogging, too! What surprise!! Lovely to find out a romanian church in Oshawa, Ontario... so far!! So glad to see all details and the look at them so close up... Thank you so!!
I love the details of the windows and the gingerbread in these images!!
Both bricks are pretty in their own way. The windows are beautiful in the second picture! The church temple almost looks like a Jewish Temple, except for the triple crosses..
I don't think we have yellow bricks around here. Kind of unusual to me.
I have lived in many different areas in which various colored bricks are used. This is certainly and interesting post, and your photos, as always, are excellent!!
Nice series for letter B...Happy Thanksgiving♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/brevity/
Great assortment of buildings! I love brick buildings.
There are a lot of brick houses here also - I might have to take my camera and capture a few!
I am partial to the beautiful of red clay brick!
What a lovely link for the letter B.
Thanks for sharing it.
Great variety of bricks in your photos! I didn't know there was a difference in the strength, but that makes sense!
