Brick with lifting tool marks

Anniston Brick and Tile Works, Inverkeillor.

The semi-circular coping brick displays marks as left by a brick lifting tool.

The outside to outside measurement of the holes left by the device are 4″ apart.

Note the circular mark between the holes. This was 1″ in diameter and was used as a ‘depth gauge’ to stop the brick worker pushing the lifting device in too far.
