A restaurant employee set a burning cigarette on the sill of what was here a window, and caused a fire. I like the brick under the scaffold crossbraces, doing a dramatic balancing act.
This was a humble job of bricking the opening and cleaning up a few of the prior repair messes. New bricks were toothed into original ones and around 20 wall ties were installed. The old ties were simply long nails that had rusted. I could bend them out of the way with two fingers.
A more interesting sight is what remains of this old firehouse across the street. I love this old building and would like to disassemble it and rebuild it on our land. I don’t think this will happen.
