100 YEARS AGO Feb. 21, 1913 C.W. Clark of the Clark Pressed Brick Company of Little Rock, sent by parcel post this morning a brick of local manufacture to be used in building a brick house at the Coliseum at Chicago during the Clay Products Exposition. This brick will be one of 25,000 sent by parcel post from every brick plant in the United States to be used in the construction of this house, which will be given away and re-erected after the exposition. A record will be kept of each brick from the time it is mailed until it is delivered in Chicago in order to see how speedily Uncle Sam can deliver a brick house by mail.
