Re: Re: Brick
That is absolutely, unquestionably not the case. The visual evidence of the wide shot tells it all, with the Victorian veneer exposed for the sham that it is at attic level – the red colouring having simply been washed off. The ‘red mortar’ you refer to, as far as I can see, is simply the original yellow mortar with aborbed Venetian red wash. It stands out more than the brick as the mortar (by design) is softer than the substrate, while it has washed off more quickly from the harder brick which originally absorbed less. You can see quite clearly that the original white tucks were just washed over at that time too. It was an awful job. All it needs is an array of prissy Victorian nets to complete the po-faced aspirant ensemble.
