Found at the old Ravenscraig Steelworks, Motherwell.

This side stamped silica brick is marked ‘SSBCo’.

This may represent the Scottish Silicate Brick Company Limited, Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.

However, many silica bricks found on the same site were manufactured in Wales so the stamp could also represent the Swansea Siemens Brick Co, Landore, which produced silica bricks and just to confuse further, Stephens Silica Brick Company Ltd, Kidwell, Wales (‘Stephens’ stamped bricks were also found on the same site).
