I walk a lot around town, and I’ve become interested in the great variety of sidewalks to be seen. In this part of town there are many brick herringbone sidewalks which are probably one hundred years old. They are periodically interrupted by brick driveways which always seem to have a more linear arrangement of bricks, with the bricks set on edge rather than flat, and with twin depressions from years of cars coming and going.
The curbs are also interesting; most of them are mundane featureless white concrete, but the rounded corners have been left. They are made of roughly-formed pieces of limestone.
Take a look at this photo of a Purington Paver, a common sidewalk brick around town:
