The Office: Bricks and Stone

A while back I posted about the building I work in and promised that it would be the first in a series. Welcome to the second in the series.

Back in the day, bricks were the building material of choice, and so it's impossible to escape them in my office -- even in the bathrooms. And then there are the stones that form the foundation: massive sandy-colored things that were probably shifted by teams of mules, or men.

The bricks meet stone in the basement.

Old and new bricks combine to fill arches.

A modern convenience set on a time-tested foundation.

A latch for a massive sliding door.

A wacky brick; there are heaps of these.
