Deep Research Case 1: Half Brick Stamped With “ST. LOUIS”

The Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre needs your help! We’re investigating some unknown objects in the collection and are looking for any information you may have about them. Every week, we’ll be posting a new case. If you have any information about the objects, please contact Collections Manager, Amanda Sittrop, at collections@cmags.org.

CASE 1: HALF BRICK STAMPED WITH “ST. LOUIS”
This brick could have possibly been used in kiln construction at the mines, a chimney in a residential home, or in the construction of the Canmore School. Do you know about its history?
