A Brotherhood of Bricks

Saturday, June 3, 1871

The Brick Manufacturers’ Association elects R. P. Dencker to the presidency of the organization.  Its goals are to “cultivate a more intimate and friendly relation among the fraternity [of brick makers], consultation with reference to the best interests of the business, and, as far as possible, the maintenance of uniform prices for brick, labor &c., thus preventing violent fluctuations that frequently occur, and prove disastrous to the business.”
