Manitoba Brick

Manitoba once boasted nearly 200 brick-making factories – many small, some enormous. Over the course of 130 years, from the early 1860s to 1990, these brickyards turned out the billions and billions of bricks that were used to put up the very walls of many of our province’s landmark buildings. Explore this important and fascinating history through a new study that examines the history of Manitoba’s brick making industry.> More about this project
