The Memory Store: Start right at the roofline and rip right down to the bottom...

The Memory Store post this week is another video from the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador. Executive director Anne Manuel explains how the Craft Council repaired the brick exterior of Devon House. Anne describes how the builders had to start at the roofline and rip the bricks down to the bottom before replacing/repairing the exterior wall.
