Brick with lifting tool marks.

Comments Off on Brick with lifting tool marks. 5

Found in a layby near Moffat, Dumfries and Galloway.

Unidentified manufacturer.

Find location would suggest Scottish origins.

The 2 lifting tool mark holes are 2 1/4″ inches apart.

The left one penetrates to a depth of 2″ and the right one to a depth of 1 3/4″.

There is also just below the marks either a thumbprint or a mark left by part of the lifting tool – possible a wooden stop to ensure the prongs to not penetrate further than they need to.

Below – some curved linear markings – possibly an imprint of the wooden mould? (tree rings?)

Below  – large thumbprint to the bottom middle of this photo.
