You can not beat a good bit of professional brick work - solid as a rock !

Now I never would have thought that brickwork above the clapboards would be prototypical.   Goes to show there's a prototype for everything imaginable.
Nice photo.   Do you know where that is located?

 I would say that the whole of that wall is timber framed and at one point it all  would have been wattle and daubed , or maybe lath and plastered . At some point the plaster failed and the bottom half was covered with weatherboard ( and not that long ago) and the plaster in  top panels was removed and infilled with brick ( badly) . The wall underneath the weatherboard could also be infilled with brick but obviously we can't tell from the photo .

  The whole lot is a mess and would take quite a bit of time and money to make it all look alright . Glad I'm not having to work on it .

That scene cries out to be modeled, perhaps as a diorama backdrop.

Nick,
That makes sense.   Otherwise, without the framing what else would support the brickwork.   
I do agree with the others about this making a good subject to model.

Wattle and daub is the same term used here in the States.   Wattle is the branches/boards used behind the outside daub/plaster ( a very simplified explanation).

Translation and sub titles for all those who live on the other side of the water
Fish is what swims in the sea and chips is fries - a flue pipe is what things go up - and we walk on the pavement and cross the road or High street
a Supermarket is were you can purchase cheese-onion and bread rolls the main diet of an English man
a Wattle is what you can dab if it turns you on !
