This is a pic of some random bricks that I found in the yard. I don't think they were used to actually build the house. My theory is they are the bricks used to build the small retaining wall between our house and our neighbor. Yes.....the leaning retaining wall. You guessed it.....of course, it is leaning towards our side. Just tell me..... Why is that always the case?

Here is a shot of the Plainville Brick Kilns est. 1923. Read more here.

Today, it would be about a 3 hour drive from here to Plainville.

That's a fun find! I like the stamp on them. What do you think you will use them for?

Is there any chance that the wall could be rebuilt so that it doesn't lean?

I am not sure what I will do with them. I need to find out how many I may have. I havn't checked all the bricks.

Eventually we are going to have to address the leaning wall. It will have to be re-built somehow. Hopefully we will get to it, before it gets to us, so to say.
