Luke & Co

Found by Chris Graham on the Solway Firth, Dumfries and Galloway.

Manufacturer believed to be or at least the brickmark is believed to be F R & C H Luke & Co, Slate Quarry owners & general factors for building materials, Head Office, 122 George Street, Edinburgh. Luke & Co were associated with the Prestongrange Brickworks, East Lothian so the assumption is that bricks so stamped were manufactured there for Luke and Co to sell on in their capacity as merchants and agents. However, this particular stamp has only been found on the West coast around the Solway Firth so it may mean that Luke and Co had another brick manufacturer also manufacturing bricks for them. The fabric of this brick is very different to the Luke & Co bricks found elsewhere in Scotland.
