Historical notes: This labour intensive form of sealing footpaths dates from the depression relief schemes of the 1930's. It provided a demand for bricks from the local brickworks as well as usefully occupying the unemployed. The Central Brick and Tile Co. of St. Peters supplied the bulk of brick pavers for the Municipality of Marrickville.
