IMPORTED AND OUT-OF-STATE BRICKS



Large numbers of bricks were imported or shipped to California in the past, particularly in the 19th century. These include all types of bricks shipped here from other countries or states. The years given are generally the operating years of the brickmaker and the range may be wider than the actual manufacturing years of the brick. In some cases, the manufacturing years of the brick are given but may not be complete until further research is done. Below are listed the ones that have been found in California.
