A Rare Brick Wall

Brick buildings are somewhat rare here in Calgary, Canada. This is an extra random picture and I the only reason I even took it is because I just like brick for some reason haha. I wasn’t ever going to post it any where, but I thought I’d just toss it up here for the hell of it on a Saturday afternoon :).

  1. I’m right into brick walls at the moment as I just had to have one built or re-built in my apartment after it started collapsing during a bathroom renovation! the original was from the 1920s and now a new one built in the 21st century. How old is this one, I wonder?

    • Oh geez! Sorry to hear about the crumble. Anyhow, I am not sure the age of this one, but I’m sure it is old as this is quite an old building. I go by here from time to time, so the next time I go by I’ll stop and find out and give you an update 🙂

  2. We have brick everywhere in NZ. It’s hard to imagine what a city without brick walls/buildings would actually look like. Brick buildings are some of our favourite things to photograph and one of our favourite backdrops. There’s just something romantic and beautiful about brick.

    • Thats great and I totally agree! If I understand correctly they didnt have a lot of the proper material around Calgary for making bricks, so they used a lot of wood and Sandstone over bricks. There are some old brick buildings here, just not a lot like in other cities. Another thing to mention is that there are barely any brick houses, which sucks! because those are by far my favorite kind.

  3. I wonder how many times they rearrange the windows. If i look at the photo at least two times.That’s the nice part of brick buildings you almost always can see what they have done with it. Nice photo.
