We like to talk a lot about how great our bricks are, but we’re going to start letting other folks do the talking for us. First up, Mr. Charles Varle, who we couldn’t interview because he died roughly 150 years ago. Nonetheless, here is his take, as recorded in his 1833 monograph “A Complete View of Baltimore”:
“The best bricks in the US are manufactured in Baltimore, and the exportation of that branch of industry is now considerable.”
Thanks, Mr. Varle! We couldn’t agree more.
