MASONS
[ Also see Architecture Building Occupations ]

Sir, he made a chimney in my father's house, and the bricks are alive at this day to testify it.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Weaver at IV, ii)

The elder of them, being put to nurse,
  Was by a beggar woman stol'n away
    And, ignorant of his birth and parentage,
      Became a bricklayer when he came to age.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Cade at IV, ii)

The crowded line of masons with trowels in their right hands, rapidly laying the long sidewall,
  The flexible rise and fall of backs, the continual click of the trowels striking the bricks,
    The bricks, one after another, each laid so workmanlike in its place, and set with a knock of the trowel-handle.
      - Walt Whitman, Song of the Broad-Axe
         (pt. III, st. 4)
