Brickworks near Warsaw

When I first searched for "brickworks" near Warsaw on Google, I thought finding an operational factory would be easy. 

It turned out that many of the places I had marked on my map were abandoned. Many were graveyards for thousands of broken and whole bricks, not even deemed worthy of sorting and sale. 

When I did find a working factory, it might as well have been abandoned. One sole worker shoveled coal to load the kiln. The machinery lay dormant, and only the green bricks on the drying racks gave any hint of ongoing production.
