Laying Brick

A few days ago, I saw a couple men working to replace 
the brick facing on one of the light stanchions 
that line the Crawfordsville Road entry into Speedway. 
The road is being widened to accommodate 
additional traffic from the new exits 
being constructed just beyond, at I-74 and I-465.

The men doing the work are mature. 
This must be an easy job for them, but I'm happy 
to see that grown men have a job, and that 
their skills are appreciated.

Here, an earlier shot shows a crew dismantling 
one of the original lights. They saved the original 
stanchions and the medallions from the centers 
of the bases, as well as some of the rebar.
