Found by Denis Foulem along the Bathurst harbour seashore, located in the province of New Brunswick in Canada.

I am not in possession of this example.

The manufacturer is unknown.

This brick was found dumped at a specific point along the Bathurst harbour to act as a breakwater near the confluence of the Nepisiguit River (the site is known locally as Billy White’s Wharf, named after a sawmill that was located there in the early 20th century). It was found alongside other Scottish bricks stamped Kirkwood, Gartcraig and Kirkwood.

It is believed this is of Scottish origins very likely a product of the Cardowan Fire Clay Works, Stepps, Glasgow or its onetime sister company the Heathfield Fireclay Works, Garnkirk.
