Taken literally, it reads like when you create a brickyard, it takes x amount of bricks already made and stored and places them where you put the yard... Like creating an instant storage spot. This would allow more remote construction sites (think Valley of the Kings...Sun Temples, etc.) take a little less time than eternity to construct....
Well, if we wish to take the statement literally, Chris's post says:
...the 'Brickyard,' which allows you to quickly and easily place large amounts of bricks near construction sites, greatly accelerating the speed with which you can build your city....It can easily be inferred that he means bricks that are already constructed, but his post gives no clear implication of that, so the question occurred to me. I greatly doubt they would take such an extreme step, so it's not worth arguing; however, taken literally, the statement is "you can place large amounts of bricks", not "it takes x amount of bricks already made and stored."
