Abandoned Brick Plants
At first glance it didn't seem like many of the brick plants around the province remained. Of course Claybank (the largest of the brick plants) was saved and is now a historic site but there were so many other brick plants that seem to have vanished.. or so i thought. After years of research I figured out where they were located and found out the kilns do indeed remain. I really enjoyed photographing and locating these sites.
I got to photograph and explore the entire first site. This location produced over one million bricks between 1905-1960. It's bricks were used for heritage sites, museum and other buildings in the area. The bricks were unique as they were made sideways "T" shape which allowed them to interlock when rotated.
The second site is on private late and had a resident nearby on my many visits over the years so I only photographed it from a distance.
