Found on the old site of the Atlas and Etna Brickworks, Armadale, West Lothian. Unmarked brick with cat paw prints. There may be another 2 paw prints on the brick but I am not certain so I have not marked them. Unidentified maker. Find location would suggest Scottish origins but … Could the central circular…
Found West Wemyss, Fife
I am informed that this could be both a cat and a dog paw print.
The top is most likely a cat as the claws are retracted.
The bottom is most likely to be a dog as you can see the claws – dogs cannot retract their claws.
Now, I envisage the brickworks cat,employed to keep the mice levels down, being chased by the brick moulders dog across the top of the ‘green’ bricks which had just been laid out to dry.
