Dutch Bond

The brick pattern with two or more stretcher courses between headers is named Dutch Bond.

Brick pattern

I like the bond pattern of that brick wall. It's a common bond, but with the headers every third course, not sixth or seventh course as you usually see in American buildings.

Nice but unostentatious

St. Louis-based Moon Motor car Company (1906-1930), which survived its founder Joseph W. by only 11 years, was never a major producer but its offerings were high-quality, medium-price cars offering innovations like Lockheed hydraulic brakes as early as 1924 (something Ford didn't get around to until the late '30s). The model shown is a bit on the short-and-boxy side, but the Rolls Royce-inspired radiator shell is a nice touch.

Granite curbing.

Looks like some of the granite curbs that can be found in San Francisco.

Quite a shine on that finish!

Such clear reflections.
