Lumber City

jack donohue comments:
Found among other brick rubble on the east bank of the Hudson, Lumber City, a jumbo brick. It was just south of Poughkeepsie. Doesn't lok like a native Hudson Vally brick. Any clue?

  1. Hello Jack,
    You're right. The LUMBER CITY is a fire brick "model name" produced by a (succession of company names) George S. Good, Crescent Refractories and North American Refractories having locations in Lumber City, Clearfield and Curwensville, PA. Years the tradename was in use, includes 1917-1958.
    Reference works by Jim Graves and Karl Gurcke.
