Reconstruction of the cornice

75 Stewart has a brickwork cornice similar to other warehouses in the area from the same era. Examining many of these facades up close reveals a combination of orientation and position of the bricks to create patterns. There is a repeating tower design and a few courses of extruding bricks along the cornice of 75 Stewart. A series of granite slabs cap the parapet on 3 sides.

I want to say these are S&F Company bricks but I'm not sold,
