Details of the following bricks have been forwarded by Eion Ross who lives in Oamaru, South Island, New Zealand.
Eion states ” These bricks were found lying around the town, and I think they were from the local retorts which were demolished in the 1980s. The original gas works were built in the 1870s and rebuilt nearby 1939-40. I think these bricks if they did come from the would come from the later time ”
