ontario gothic farmhouse, relief brickwork

Line 6 Blanshard from top to bottom of the township, presents a scenic tour of homes with interesting relief brickwork… one after another! Brick colour trends toward yellow but can be a contrast with red brick, but additionally of interest is the raised pattern of brickwork. Photo credit: Lisa Rance, June 2015
