Bricks in the streets are not unusual, even not nowadays. You still find them in many historic parts of the old cities. In some 'very historical' streets the streets are paved with so called 'kinderkopjes' (translate: little children's heads). These are somewhat rough and uneven stones, which makes walking or especially biking a bit difficult... I'll bet you've seen them once.
