It's Fence Day!

There are a lot of fences in this new neighborhood of mine, but this is one type I have never seen before.
This fence with it's unusual top goes around (or use to), most of the city block. I am not sure when the fence was built, but the property owner, from 1893 to 1944, owned a brick contracting company here in Fort Worth, Texas. The old home, which faces the next street, is being renovating. I will post about it on another day.

  1. The owner used his bricks very well for this fence, maybe he had some left overs.

  3. Looks pretty dangerous on top, very formidable.

  4. A very sturdy looking brick wall, but I don't like it - I'd rather see the house and garden behind it.

  5. I never saw that kind before also, but I think he had to do something special, since he owned that factory :)
    Have a fine day

  8. It is definitely different Janey, but when you mentioned the owner had a brick contracting business, it all made sense :)
