This company built permanent silos from brick, with cypress doors, intending them to be more permanent than a wooden silo. The booklet displays how the blocks are shaped and how they are fit together, a table for calculating how many blocks were needed for silo projects with various dimensions, photographs of completed projects, and many testimonials from customers. Louisville was once a center with many brick and tile businesses, drawn to the town by the railroad that came through. This is an attractive booklet from this historic business at its peak.
