This is the corner of Market and Fore Street in the Old Port area of the city. If you are looking to investigate brick buildings Portland is your city. The heart of it is pretty much filled with brickworks. That and cobblestones. However, the cobblestones will, for the most part, be a bit harder to locate. Although most the thoroughfares in the city were constructed with these rounded stones, these days most streets have been tarred over, so you'll probably need a jackhammer to view them. It was always a fun adventure when Dad turned the station wagon on to Commercial Street. It was all bumpity, bumpity, bump. As I recall there was lots of laughter and an occasional screech emanating from the back seat.
All hail cobblestones!
I would imagine alignment shops took a 'hit' when the blacktop covered them.
Oh well, bricks or otherwise.
Get a project started.
You wouldn't want to see our deck and porch this morning.
Back to work, I go.
btw Even the masters had it right.
