After Photos

These bricks were original historic fabric taken from the surrounding wall of the old jailhouse in the back region which was not as prominent and used at the front wall sourounding the jailhouse
"After" photo of the front entrance after the bricks that were missing on the ends were replaced
This is the front wall where the replacement bricks from the back wall were laid just below the burlap shown in the photo so as to complete the wall
All of these bricks laid as "Sailors& were fabricated by deGruchy Masonry Restoration at their workshop in Quakertown, PA using Lithomex by St. Astier and then transported to Charleston. The bricks were made in advance knowing that this section of wall would be donating original loose bricks that were laid here to go up to the more prominent front entrance wall surrounding the jail
