Local Scenes - unusual chimney

Was the brick mason a master of thrift in a depressed time? Or did he have another reason to turn bricks sideways. The base of the chimney is in the conventional way, and so is the top of the chimney. But the middle, straight section has sideways bricks, producing a thinner wall.
Will Peterson saw the remains of the old house and interesting chimney on Lothair Church Road, near the site of the old Orland Consolidate School.
The Sign Man thinks that his grandfather, a WWI veteran, lived in that house.
