AbstractThe stiff-mud method of forming bricks and the tunnel kiln for burning them, now account for a large proportion of the output of the Canadian industry. The historical development of these methods of making and firing bricks is traced, along with other developments that have influenced brickmaking, such as demands for colour and texture, and for the use of brickwork as an engineering material.
