In Chicago's building materials industry, no less important than the quarrying and cutting of limestone was the production of brick. The city's brick factories, several of which came to be concentrated on the southern edge of the city in Blue Island, were among the largest in the nation. As early as the middle of the 1850s, there were over 20 large brickyards in the area, which transformed clay (abundant in local soils) into a total of nearly 100 million bricks per year. The use of brickmaking machines, introduced to Chicago in 1856 by M. O. Walker, allowed the output of individual yards to soar. The brickyard of Strauss, Hahne & Co. in Blue Island, established in 1863, was making over 25 million bricks per year by the 1870s. By the beginning of the 1890s, the metropolitan area was home to about 60 brickyards, which made a total of about 600 million bricks annually.
