100 YEARS AGO Jan. 27, 1913 Two sample bricks were on Saturday afternoon sent out over the parcel post by the Arkansas Brick and Manufacturing Company. The bricks weighed between 4 and 10 pounds and it cost about 30 cents to ship them by the new postal service. The bricks are samples, and about 1,000 of them will be mailed out during the present week.
