Brick wall profile

Foundation, wall, what's the diff.

This 65 yr old one has a double-wythe red brick foundation wall/veneer that bears the floor frame on its inside wythe down low, then looks to have a wall frame of pine on top, with gypsum lath and plaster inside, single wythe brick outside, but on building ends, even way up in the attic, brick is double wythe again, and on ends, outlets are baseboard mounted, no on wall.

I enjoy variety in building style but have not seen this.

In the pic you see fat pine joists bearing on inner wythe with blocking in between.
