Just as cells are the building blocks of biology, bricks are the building blocks of architecture.
Here’s another look at some structures (all at least ninety years old) that architects and masons have created with the humble brick:
Binyon-O’Keefe Storage (1916, Sanguinet and Staats) on Calhoun Street.
Thannisch Building (1907) on East Exchange Avenue.
Wall of the Swift packing plant (about 1902) on Northeast 23rd Street.
Commercial building (1906) at 219 South Main Street.
The old Santa Fe Union Depot (1900) on Jones Street.
And naturally there is fine brickwork on the monument (1922) in the bricklayers union plot at Oakwood Cemetery.
