Scottish bricks found in Vladivostok, Russia

The following Scottish bricks were found by Igor Tarasov in Vladivostok, Russia.

The bricks were found in ruined furnaces which formed part of the Soviet Army barracks in Vladivostok.

Firebricks stamped ‘Boghead’ and ‘Scotia’ and a building brick marked ‘Mac Brand’

The manufacturing origins of the Scotia and Mac Brand are not confirmed but I believe they were made in Scotland.  I have found these bricks together on at least 6 different locations in Scotland, often forming part of the same structure. The Mac Brands appear to have been used as fire bricks in the past although they have more the look of a building brick.

These bricks were found along side a mystery brick marked OMC – this is also a firebrick. Possibly ? Main Colliery or ? ? Company
