    Very interesting brickwork here! Are the different colors of the brick intentional – or the result of restoration? To me, it looks like the latter – i that period architects here would use all sorts of (wild!) brick variations, posing problems when repairs are necessary and the same type and character of brick cannot be reproduced…

  • Thanks for the fave, Marjolein. Not sure why the bricks are of different colors.
