Found on the site of the old Bonnyside Brickworks, Bonnybridge.

J & R Howie Ltd, Hurlford, Kilmarnock.

Why do so many ‘Ignis’ fire bricks turn up at the Bonnyside Brickworks? Did Dougall, Bonnyside Brickworks take over the brand name at some point?



Below – Ignis. Found at the same location as above. The style of the lettering and the frog are identical.

Below – 1952 – A page from a Howie catalogue – Ignis and Meteor – also Porex, Metal roofing tiles, Eccon hollow bricks, Puro sanitary drinking fountains etc and Marbolith jointless flooring.
