These are the last two from this place. In my previous post I showed the east and west ends of the building, this is the north side showing the main entrance. I can't imagine fitting all these odd shapes together, must have been a very talented bricklayer.

Bob,

Why doI think gingerbread house when I look at these shots?

The brickwork detail is well done. The bricklayers must have had fits trying to dampen their sense of order in order to meet the specs of chaos.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

It is a good thing, in the case of this building, that the masonry work is not part of the supporting structure of the building. If it were, I think the first Spring breeze would blow it down. Where is the wolf who challenged the three little pigs when you need him to huff and puff and test a theory? I do have to agree that the masonry on this building is outstanding. So are the photographs of it!

Quite interesting, Bob. My brother-in-law who is an architect would probably be cringing with all the shapes, angles, etc in this building. You did a good job of photographing it.
