Gartcraig and Glenboig bricks found in Canada

Found by Valerie Johnson on the islands of Haida Gwaii on the west coast of Canada in British Columbia.

Valerie states – We kayaked to another small island off Daajing Giids (formerly Queen Charlotte) a ‘city’.  We landed on this smaller island to poke around a small cabin that seemed to be abandoned there.  On the shore of the island were these bricks.
