Sorry, no picture.
James's class from school came to see the yin-yang garden today. They all tramped through in single file behind me, and several of the boys seemed to think it was cool. Then they continued on their tour with Arcola's area historian, Adrian Paton. They paused at the end of the yard and I listened in while he told them about the brick ponds. Apparently there were drying sheds just south of our place, and kilns beyond that, close by the tracks so the finished bricks could be loaded onto rail cars. I wonder how far they went.
I may have mentioned this before, but if you know of some old Arcola bricks that could be had, fairly close to here, please let me know. I only need about a thousand . . .
