New Yorkers wouldn't be caught dead sightseeing on the
Empire State Building. Washington folks never visit Mount
Vernon. Atlantans seldom see the Cyclorama. Augustans, I'm
afraid, are out of the same cloth.
Merry has visitors from many foreign lands , as far away as
New Zealand and Australia, who come to study first hand our
modern handling and burning methods. Most folks here think of us
as home made and therefore must be like any other brickyard.
