poor re-pointing ,100+ year old English bond ,
seen alot worse  ;D
and it's lasted 100+ years, bricks where not uniform back then,
 I recently rebuilt my kitchen with period correct bricks ,not easy compared to modern, light,uniform bricks
and being a "brickie" involved little to no training
back then they threw walls up 
better than 'some' of the crap sheds they put up today though  :o

It`s a bit like a lot of the brickwork of the time, just throw in the odd half when things don`t work out (when the bricklayers can`t keep the perps plumb)  ;D

While charmer Lord Opti was plying his charms on the 'ladies' finer points, the rest of OOF are discussing something much more interesting the brickworks finer points. ;D ;D ;D

As a railway historian I love the engineering bricks used to build the railways in the 19th century.  As an excellent example you just have see the marvellous twin brick flat arch bridges, each with a 128 foot span, that cross the Thames at Maidenhead built by Isambard K. Brunel and finished in 1838.  The so called experts of the time believed it would collaspe under it's own weight due to the flatness and length of each span. It today carries the latest High Speed Trains, and still looks beautiful.

I had the chance once to secure some engineering bricks from a viaduct built in 1899 as part of the Great Central main line to Rugby which I watched being demolished ( :'( :'(  >:() in the late 1970's.  They were a great slate grey in colour and I would still have them today if my ex had not taken them >:(

Yes, I love great brickwork :-* ;)
