Old photo W018

Kevin Alexander sent this photo in of Askam brickworks in 1958. Kevin says, "John Gillard Snr is pictured with the wheelbarrow; the other man was Eric Price. The used to move the bricks in wheelbarrows to the kilns from the building in the background. Now they use forklift trucks, although part of filling the kiln is still done by hand. John Gillard Jnr is the original owner of the picture, and works at the brickyard."
