AbstractThe excellent condition of some old masonry buildings has been attributed to the use of lime mortar, but on the other hand attempts to use straight lime mortars have not always been without difficulty. Small panels made with lime mortar and local bricks have been constructed and set out for exposure at various times of the year. The observations made on them, as part of the continuing program of masonry research being carried out at the Atlantic Regional Station of the Division in Halifax, are now reported.
