Brick Pavers - Joseph Hamblet 1883

Not a grave, or a grave marker, but worth preserving nonetheless. 

Original Victorian Staffordshire blue brick pavers. Each paver has been stamped with the makers name, Joseph Hamblet and year of manufacture, 1883. Each brick paver measures 9x3x41/4" and there are at least 50 of them which have survived the test of time!

Joseph Hamblet founded the Piercy Brickworks in West Bromwich in 1851. The brickwork became well known for the blue bricks it produced. Joseph Hamblet died in 1894 and the business continued until 1915.
