Anyway, below is a photo of two bricks with impressed hearts in them. One with a single heart and one with two hearts. I would love to know where they were made. My guess is that they are of Queensland origin but don't have a clue to their age or which brickworks they come from. Please feel free to leave a comment if you know any information about them.
The next two bricks also came from my neighbour. I am sure that the 'Q' stands for Queensland but have no idea which brickworks it comes from. The other brick has 'W' (or maybe an 'M') impressed into the frog (the indentation in the face of a brick). Any information about any of these bricks would be most appreciated.
I will put some of my other bricks and garden edge tiles on a future post.
Cool,reminds me of lots of hard work!ReplyDelete

I was given a red brick with an impressed heart in it and I was wondering the origin of mine as well...ReplyDelete

Hi Christina, Do you have a photo of your brick that you could share with us?Delete
Hey there, I too have a brick with the W on it. I recently went to St Helena's Island - the old jail island off Brisbane, and found they had a heap of them. I asked the tour guide who mentioned the W stands for Workshop. They were made on the island and some through various means ended up on the mainland. I found that interesting as is your post. Thanks, Eric.ReplyDelete
Interesting information. ThanksDelete
