Hello Fishlady no this is definitely a mortar mix of some description and there is no clay on the exterior to retain the water.
I always thought they used lime in their mixes years ago? does lime dissipate over time? it looks to be the same consistency as the mortar used on the bricks on the second part of the house built in the 1900s.

EDIT: NOPE, uploaded again showed the two files with check boxes, selected check boxes then submitted again, perhaps i am in some sort of trial by admin?
