Hydraulic Press Brick Company Stock

St. Louis, Missouri stock. Vignette of early hydraulic press!

Year: 1887.
Condition: Excellent.

The founder of the company, E. C. Sterling, developed the concept of molding dry clay with a hydraulic press. Sterling overcame many obstacles as earlier attempts to utilize a dry clay manufacturing technique in the East had proven unsuccessful. He established his first operation in Memphis. In 1864, after the disruption of the Civil War, he relocated to St. Louis.

Henry Ware Eliot was the Secretary of the Hydraulic Press Brick Company and father to T. S. Eliot, later serving in all offices including President, until his retirement at age 70.
