Brick workers in the past


At Market Lavington Museum we have a copy of a battered old photo of brick workers. The image carries the legend, ‘Men of 40 years ago’.

The men of 40 years ago - but when was that caption written? An image at Market Lavington Museum

But it isn’t forty years ago from this year, 2010.

Holloway Bros sign

The board carried by the men says, ‘Holloway Bros’. We think this photo must date from the late Victorian era. The Holloways owned the works then and there was still forty years before the works closed. The picture may have been hung at the brickworks in the 1920s or 30s.

If anyone recognises any of the brick workers then do let us know about them.
