ABC Wednesday - B is for Broken Bricks



B is for Broken Bricks............



a brick sidewalk that needs repair



Considering that this is a sidewalk, and these bricks get a lot of foot traffic, most of them appear to be in really good condition.

There are not a lot of cracks or crumbling of the ones still in the walkway - their edges are still quite defined.

Water and frost heaves in the winter have wreaked havoc along the curb side with the bricks, and I was kind of surprised that the loose ones are still there and not picked up.

You need to be careful walking along this sidewalk to begin with as it is very uneven, but those loose bricks just invite someone to trip over them.

If we ever get back to this area, it will be interesting to see the condition this sidewalk is in.

At the very least I hope those wayward bricks are gone!




This is the fifth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  3. Brick pavements are lovely, and nice to walk on than concrete slabs, but I'd be wary of a broken one!

  4. That walkway is just screaming to trip someone! Have you ever tripped while walking down the street, and you turn back and look at the sidewalk accusingly like it jumped up and smacked you? That's one of those sidewalks right there.
