Joe Elswick, Mason
This photo shows Joe Elswick working on the south wall of the house. Joe laid the brick walls of the new ell, and he did some of the work on the troublesome south wall of the main house, which is seen here. Over the years the south wall of the main house had developed a bulge. That section where the bulge was most noticeable had to be demolished and a new wall put in its place. This was very delicate work. The bricks in the new portion of the wall had to be carefully fitted to the bricks in the original wall. One false move and the entire wall would have collapsed.
