Just looked at all 3 galleries and nada besides the clown or nasty writing on one
So where is the Pasadena factory in reference to Brooksbrae?Here's the kilns from Henry Charlton Beck's time (circa 1920-1935.) From Forgotten Towns of Southern New Jersey.
You can see how much has deteriorated over the years. In Beck's time the kilns all had their roofs intact, and the brick archway that frames the photograph is still standing. Keep in mind, though, that the factory had only been abandoned since 1915, meaning that the ruins were anywhere from 5-20 years old at the time this photograph was taken.
Also note that Beck totally got his wires crossed. The real Pasadena Terra Cotta Company is located up the road on private property.

Absolutely correct, Ben. As you drive up Pasadena Road—and before you arrive at the crossing for Mount Misery Road—if you look carefully on your left across the tracks, you will see the piles of bricks from the down-draft muffle kilns that once stood there. That is the location of the terra cotta works at Pasadena.Supposedly it's up Pasadena Rd. going towards Whiting, located on private property very close to someone's house.
Unfortunately not, Ben. The kilns were round and I wish I could find photos or a plan of the production complex, but, alas, nothing has crossed my path.Have you come across any photographs of the terra cotta works still standing in the course of your travels?
