The brick industry grew in the 1880s when Washburn Brothers and Empire State Brick Company opened their brickyards. At one point, the area boasted over six brick factories. Bricks were sent down the Hudson River by barge to furnish the construction of America's cities.
During the depression the brick business languished. One of the Washburn brothers committed suicide. All the workers were called in by the remaining brother and told, "Business is bad. If you stick with me you won't lose your job but your wages will be reduced until we can see this through. If you can't stick with the company you're free to go and find other work. Many left the brickyard and even Glasco to find other work. Many went to Athens and Hudson to work on other brickyards and in the cement plants.
As you realize, bricks are heavy but will fit into a Flat Rate Priority Box. I can fit 2 so if you win more than one I will adjust shipping so the 2nd win is FREE shipping.
