Er Di brickworks

Brick production in northern China is largely based upon Hoffmann type continuous burning kilns which are operated only for a season until the weather becomes too cold to make bricks due to frost damage that would occur to green bricks in the winter. Most villages of any size have their own brickworks and this is an example from high up in the Jinpeng area photographed from the balcony of a brake van on a passing train.
