preferably anchored to a rear or foundation wall.
Formed integral with the base portion 97 is a

Generally, it is the aim of the invention to
provide a composite building block of the above
character embodying novel features of construc
an upwardly inclined ?ange I04 substantially par
allel with ?ange I02 and forming therebetween
a channel I05. Formed at the junction of the web
portion I03 and ?ange H14 is a, leg IE6 embedded
in the cementitious body portion 94 of the block.
The numeral I81 represents a sheet of suitable
tion and arrangement which will not only greatly
enhance the ornamental appearance of the block
but which will also improve its structural char
acteristics.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of a building block of the above character having
?ashing material, preferably of metal, and having
an ornamental facing including one or more
its outer end portion folded upon itself as at I88
and inserted within the channel I5. The free
end I09 of said ?ashing is bent over the top of
the ?ange I02 to provide a neat, water-tight con
struction, If desired, a layer of mortar lIil may
sheets or plates of opaque structural glass of the
same or different colors and with which may be
associated metal moldings or facing strips which
not only give to the block a more attractive, ?n
ished appearance but also adapt it to varied uses.
A further object of the invention is the pro
be disposed between the ‘?ashing I81 and body
portion 94 of the block.
It is to be understood that the form of the
invention herewith shown and described is to be
taken as the preferred embodiment of the same,
member of improved construction and to which .
and that various changes in the shape, size and
a suitable ?ashing material may be readily and
arrangement of parts may be resorted to Without
securely attached.
