Luke and Co, Preston Pans, East Lothian

(Note – SBH – I am not convinced that Luke & Co actually manufactured the fire bricks as a business. There is a good chance that the bricks were manufactured at the Preston Grange brick and tile works and the Luke and Co company name added to the brick as the purchasing customer for onward selling. Francis Luke was also the manager and secretary of the Preston Coal and Fire Brick Co Ltd)
