Brick foundation

I have a house with a brick foundation (c. 1908-1910). The lower portion of the brick develops a white powdery surface and flakes off. I assume it is moisture seeping through. How do I deal with it short of digging around the foundation and sealing it?

Do you like the appearance of the brick ... If not concerned that the coatings will change color the basement water sealants are easily applied but white brick is out come...
