"brown..."   (Araby)

While the color brown helps establish a more disheartening and somber tone for the story, this color of brick was commonly used to construct Dublin houses. The brown bricks were known as Dolphin’s Barn, an inner-city suburb of Dublin, bricks because they were made in that part of the city.
