From a Reader: The Tucson Pressed Brick Co. Today

Our September issue features Kathy Montgomery's story on the Tucson Pressed Brick Co., and that prompted Tim Johnson to write us an email.

"The name sounded familiar, and when I saw its final location was on Houghton Road, it dawned on me," Johnson said. "That site is now the Madera Veterinary Hospital, where we've been taking our cats for years. Their website has a page that shows the history, including photos."

We got in touch with the veterinary hospital, and they graciously agreed to let us use one of their photos on our website. The site notes that the photos are from the family of the late James L. Edel, the brick company's general manager.

You can learn more about the site's history and see more photos on Madera Veterinary Hospital's page, or by picking up a copy of the September issue, which is on newsstands now.
