Why Lincoln Bricks Were Better
This building, known as the New Boiler room, was attached to a unit known as the gas producers. This gas was produced from coal. Producer gas was different from illuminating gases because no by-products such as smoke or coal tar were released. The brick company also claimed that by using a more effective control of heat a superior brick was produced. (Marker Number 6.)
