Found by Tucker Kennedy at Port Glasgow, Glasgow.

I am reliably informed by members of the Glenboig community that this is a Gartverrie brick (GV). The same shortcut with regards the name us used in Garnqueen, Glenboig (GQ).

It is a poor quality cement building brick with what looks like, a high sand content. They state they were a ‘nightmare’ to build with.

I can find no record that the Gartverrie Fire Clay works manufactured building bricks. For further enquiry.

Gartverrie Fireclay Works, Glenboig.
