Friends Chris and Morag are doing up an extremely old farmhouse. When they stripped back to the stone walls in one of the bedrooms they revealed an above fireplace repair with this very fine brick from Kilmarnock. The repair must have been at least 150 years after the house was built. I'm fond of old bricks with lettering on them. I often think that if I have the time I might start collecting them. I did pick one up in Texas in the seventies which is a Corsicana Cherry Red. Nice brick. Still got it.
