Haulska to speak about the brick industry

To the Editor:

The 19th- and 20th-century Hudson River brick industry will be the topic of John Haluska’s program “Bricks, Books and Google: an Improbable Journey” at the Thursday, April 18, meeting of the Guilderland Historical Society. The brick industry once brought prosperity to west bank Hudson River towns as the expansion of nearby cities created an insatiable demand for bricks.

Haluska is a member of the International Brick Collectors Association, and will bring bricks to display.

The public is invited to join historical society members for this free program and the social hour following at 7:30 p.m. at the Mynderse-Frederick House at 451 Route 146 in Guilderland Center. For information call 518-861-8582.

Mary Ellen Johnson

President

Guilderland Historical Society
