Have I done this one?
Tall brick buildings. Many of them. Even around each other. Apartment buildings. Old shops. Two story homes. Brick everywhere in Mississippi.
I'm not sure when brick was stopped being used so frequently and plentiful. I know a few brick buildings in the downtown area where I grew up were not fit to enter until they were retro-fitted for earthquakes. There simply are not as many buildings made of brick in California.
I guess the big bad wolf can knock most of California down!
