K. Gafftey residence, managing director, Montreal Terra Cotta Lumber Company (1900)

From: http://terryroz.wordpress.com/brick/

“…there was a demand for hollow clay tiles to be used in flat arched floors for steel frame buildings, in partitions, and in fireproof coverings for the steel members. The Montreal Terra Cotta Lumber Co. Limited had advertised as early as 1891 that its tiles were fire proof, sound proof, vermin proof, and damp proof.

Also in the 1890 came the appearance of architectural terra cotta which was set into brickwork as decoration.”
