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.

A similar 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 that brick is very different to this Luke & Co brick.
