"The Claybank brick factory started producing high quality brick in 1914. Located by a clay deposit at the foot of the Dirt Hills, the brick was used in steam boilers and as face brick on many buildings in Saskatchewan and Canada."

Clay deposits often became the site for brick factories. These would vary from large scale operations such as Claybank to local operations employing a few people.
