Other information: From 1888 Ironton Register

The output of firebrick for the past year is shown as follows:

Ironton Fire Brick……………………………………………………………2,000,000

Petersburg Fire Brick Co…………………………………………………..1,450,000

Standard Fire Brick Co…………………………………………………….. 830,000

Total…………………………………………………………………………………..4,300,000

This is a material decrease from the product of 1887, the decline being 1,500,000 , but a half million increase over 1886. The cessation at the Standard is the cause of the decrease. That has been idle more than half the year. Notwithstanding the decline in the product, the work has been quite brisk, a greater variety of forms of manufacture making up some for the decrease in the output.
