Prior to reclaiming the paver, the Clydesdale Brick adds authenticity to your antique brick project. (more pictures)
Our inventory of the reclaimed Clydesdale Brick is massive after salvaging the street brick pavers by the truckload from Pennsylvania in 2021. These paver type bricks are larger than a standard brick and are extremely dense. Clydesdale street brick pavers are only 8.8-9″ x 3.77" x 4.0" yet weigh a whopping 10.3 pounds each. The name is molded on the side and the top edge is what would be exposed to street wear. These were made to last and these (to our luck) certainly did. Antique street brick pavers like the Clydesdale Brick make for an elegant brick driveway, brick garden walkway (perhaps even exposing the “Clydesdale” stamp on the side), patio, antique brick sidewalk, or authentic brick pathway.
Street pavers were in use during the 1800’s through the early 1900’s all across the United States of America. From the singsong clop of horses and carriages to early automobiles, these old brick pavers have been trod upon with history and are quite collectible. The Clydesdale Brick and Stone Company opened in 1916 in Pittsburgh, PA and produced many of the products reclaimed by Experienced Brick and Stone. There were also a few smaller manufacturers such as the Clydesdale Brick Co. out of Ellwood City, Pa. (circa 1911 to 1917), the Clydesdale Brick & Stone Company (1911 to 1931), a Frisco, PA plan which closed in 1936, as well as an older Clydesdale Brick Company out of Pittsburgh that back dated to the 19th Century! There is so much history, charm, and character to these authentic street brick pavers.
