Chicago brick was manufactured from the mid 1800’s through the mid 1970's. The brick became very famous and popular in the construction industry during the Great Chicago Fire of October 1871. The fire melted the iron and wood supported structures including the mortar filled construction buildings except the buildings built with the Chicago brick by the Irish in the Chicago Irish Ghettos. The Great Fire transformed the lives of the Chicagoans and gave the city a lasting image as a place of renewal, progress and great possibilities. Chicago brick became the backbone of the cities plan to rebuilt a “fireproof” Chicago. The unmatched beauty of Chicago brick has proven impossible to duplicate. "Chicago commons" as the familiar clay bricks are called today, come in a variety of colors tones and shades.
