Day 133 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Historic Section Exterior Bricks

What you are seeing here is a close up of the bricks making up the exterior of the Historic Section of the Hotel Boulderado. The material for the bricks was brought from a quarry in northern Colorado. At the time that the Boulderado was being built (1906-1908), Boulder was full of brickyards, so the material was pressed into bricks and then laid on the foundation.
