Making the bricks

Manufacturing bricks-1

After the first flood, rebuilding the “fallen”  houses was Job #1 but bricks were in short supply and had to be brought into the villages at considerable expense from other areas.  Today, brick making is a significant revenue stream, produced on village-owned land to rebuild their own houses but also sold to wholesale brick suppliers in the area.  An inspiring example of workers owning the means to production, including the labor and materials for building their own homes.  My photos tell the basic story but there’s much more here.Manufacturing bricks-2Manufacturing bricks-2
