AbstractAn old building in Eastview, Ontario, was found to have been built of brick cavity walls. The construction of two walls was similar to that observed previously in old buildings, but the two other walls of the building had concealed bonding bricks, a type of construction which had not previously been observed in the Division's studies. It is believed that the the bonding bricks were concealed in order to improve the appearance of the walls facing the street. It is considered that this type of construction performed satisfactorily and did so over a long period of time.
