The Scotsman: Retired police sergeant shows off eccentric brick collection

New-to-me and I LOATHE this headline. He’s collecting bricks and not hurting anybody. (This may just be an American thing; “eccentric” here can be very pejorative.) The Scotsman: Retired police sergeant shows off eccentric brick collection. “When looking for a doorstop for his garden shed almost ten years ago, retired police sergeant Mark Cranston found a white painted brick from a former colliery in Ayrshire, which inspired him to explore its historical significance. Since then, Mark has amassed a huge amount of bricks from around Scotland, England, Wales and abroad, which he stores in his garden shed in Jedburgh, in the Scottish Borders.” They didn’t link to his Web site! https://www.scottishbrickhistory.co.uk/ .
