Brick yard kilns

This is a picture of a new kiln that is being built in a brickyard. It is not sure which brickyard it was because Minonk had a brickyard south of town as well as one next to the Jumbo on the north end of town. It is believed that this picture is of the brickyard at the north end of town next to the old claypit. The picture probably dates back to the late 1890's or early 1900's.
