Sugarbeet Factory Bricks

It isn't every day we get excited about a brick, but the day this was donated recently was an exception. This is a brick from the original 1897 Sugarbeet Factory building. They were sourced from all over the place, and came to Maffra on the train.

This one came from the Morwell Tile and Pottery Company - not a brick brand that we have seen around. Which is  bit of a surprise, as we think a lot of bricks went local when the factory was finally demolished in 1964.
