—City of Alexandria, Est. 1749 —John Tucker's small factory at Broomilaw Point was one of several brickyards that operated in the City of Alexandria. Park Agnew and M.B. Harlow bought the brickworks in 1890, expanding and mechanizing Tucker's small operation. By 1890, the Alexandria Brick Company was one of three large brick manufacturies in Alexandria. The brickworks employed 50 people and produced both hand-made and machine-made bricks. Renamed the Bromilaw Brick Company in 1907, the brickworks continued to turn out bricks until 1919, when it was destroyed by fire.
