Clayton, MA? Who knew?

From Brick, Vol. XXI, No. 3, Sept., 1904:

The Berkshire White Brick Co., of New York City, has placed an order with the Pittsburg office of E. M. Freese & Co. for an outfit of machinery to go to its plant at Clayton. Mass. The outfit embodies a large union brick machine, with a special draw-cutting table and a separate steel pug-mill. The plant at Clayton has been in operation for some time, but was only lately purchased by the New York company. The auger process has been adopted to displace the method formerly employed at the works, and it is the company’s expectation to produce a high grade, white front brick suitable for the New York market. The material used for brick making is a white clay, of a very plastic character. This clay is found in the form of a deposit many feet in thickness at this one – particular spot and does not appear elsewhere, which means that the company is possessed of a very valuable asset in its mineral resources. D. S. Plummer has been chosen general manager and will have charge of re-equipping the factory, and the operating of it will also come under his supervision. Mr. Plummer is, at present, a large dealer in front bricks, and has his office in W. 42nd St., New York. He has also had many years’ experience in the operating of plants, and is therefore skilled in the brick industry in all its various phases. There is a large demand throughout the entire east for white, front brick, sufficient to insure a market for the entire product of the Clayton plant and that at a very satisfactory price.
