  1. That’s a great example of an East Clayton! It even has the 2 small round Lugs in opposing corners, which was a previously unknown variety up until about a year ago when a handful of them popped up in Ralph’s Brickyard in Nelsonville. Good find!!


  2. I literally just found a brick submerged in the middle of the Fox River in Illinois.

    Dug it up and had a very faint stamp of Clayton Ohio on the side of the brick as well as some other markings. Doesn’t quite look like the brick in your picture but interesting nevertheless
