Type--Dry-pressed firebrick. Company history--The Stockton Fire Brick Company, which started in 1920 with their main plant in Stockton, was looking to expand their refractory products prompted by high market demand during the late 1920s. They needed to install large tunnel kilns but lacked the space at their Stockton property. Their search for a new plant site in 1930 led them to Pittsburg in Contra Costa County. In Pittsburg, they located 22 acres of flat land next to the Southern Pacific railroad on the south side of Parkside Drive, at its intersection with Cannery Avenue. The construction of the Pittsburg plant was started in August 1930... John T. Roberts was the president and manager of the company. The company office was in the Russ Building at 235 Montgomery Street in San Francisco. In 1943, Gladding, McBean and Company purchased the plant and continued to operate it until 1962.
