I have a question that I hope some of you may be able to answer.
The building that I work in, in Newton (please visit my blog entry today - and scroll down to lower photo set) is similar in style to many of the Catholic parochial schools in Boston, which I assume were mostly built in the 40's & 50's. That is, they share the yellow bricks and low-slung institutional styling. The bricks also show up in quite a few housing project constructions.
Do any of you know the architects and/or contractors of these buildings, or any other information concerning them? Reasons for the materials used - that is, are these bricks amazingly inexpensive or something like that? Any info you can point me to, about any history concerning such buildings, would be appreciated.
(I tried a Google search of "parochial schools" "Boston" and "yellow bricks", but came up with little of use.)
