Gartcraig brick found in Australia

This was found by Glenn Robinson in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Western Australia.

Glenn states – The homestead of Richard Amos Robinson and Sybella Robinson nee Pauley. They came from Heathcote, Victoria around 1908 and build their home in South Boulder/Kalgoorlie. The home was a 3 bedroom iron and camp home which was extended to seven rooms, Richard worked the gold mines and was part of the freemasons and also held a high position in the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union. He passed away in 1930 from T.B and Sybella died in 1939. The house was demolished and sold off in auction in 1942 and the land has been bushland ever since. I located the precise boundary lines through the Boulder Council. The heavy rain in the last few months has washed away some of the hard dirt and I’ve found a number of artefacts with a metal detector and poking steel rods in the ground. This one brick at about 200 millimetres down in the soil directly were the back of the house was.
