Clay City (the early days)

Clay City - early 1900
Clay City – early 1900

Here we see bricks being produced at Clay City in the early 1900s.

This shot was probably taken shortly after 1907 when The Far West Lumber Company formed the Far West Clay Company and opened the Clay City plant. You can see men at work on the roof and scaffolding around one of the chimneys. The round structures in the front were the kilns.

Clay City is no more, but the bricks that produced are part of many buildings and homes in Eatonville area.
