Arline said...

Can you tell me ANYTHING about Falk Brick works about 1900 in Sandwich Mass?
Any info will be MUCH appreciated!

  1. Arline,

    That's a new one. We are not familiar with a yard named "Falk." However, we do have some information on a brickyard in Sandwich, MA
    Are you related to the Sandwich historian R.A. Lovell?

  2. Arline sent this reply:

    We are Lovells, and from Sandwich, but it appears to be a different branch of the family. And the FALK BRICK WORKS was the employer of my great grandfather, back in the day. He lived in Sandwich and obviously had to walk to work, so I am assuming that Falk was also in Sandwich.
    I will keep hunting and if I discover any additional info I will let you know.

  3. Thanks Arline. I checked the Sandwich, MA Town Archives. There is no record of a Falk family ever living in town. However, the owner of a business like a brickyard may live in another town. The owner of the Sandwich Glass Company lived in Boston.
