STORIES, photos and names of workers and people associated with the old Maylands Brickworks are being sought for an open day on December 13.
For 23 years Maylands Brickworks has been fenced off with minimal public access, but the Friends of Maylands Brickworks have organised it to be opened up through Bayswater council.
FOMB, a group dedicated to protecting the state heritage-listed site, want to connect with workers, relatives or others who had ties to the Brickworks.
When the kilns were in full production the brickworks had more than 130 employees. Most lived close nearby, so they’re hoping they or their families will hear the call and come forward with tales and memorabilia for a display.
If you have a lead get in touch with FOMB via their Facebook page, email friendsofmaylandsbrickworks@ gmail.com or on 0439 491 585.
The open day runs 1 – 4pm.
