Huebener Brick no. 96
 



This brick was never painted. Bricks in the collection were identified to keep them in order. Still it looks as there some confusion in regard to this brick (unless both Hawes and Swift lived in the same house at different times)



The Edward A. Huebener collection of over 100 bricks originally collected by Mr. Huebener exhibits brick paintings of the houses from which the bricks came. The bricks have upon them painted scenes of (mostly) old Dorchester houses and landmarks. To see a list of all the bricks, choose the term Architecture in the list at the left of the screen and choose the first subsection -- the Edward A. Huebener Brick Collection and scroll to the bottom of that page to see icons for all the bricks.
