Brick Streets of Pampa

n 1927, the champion Indian bricklayer, Jim Brown, was brought to Pampa with the Stucky Construction Company. The year previous, he had made a world's record by laying 64,644 bricks in seven hours and 48 minutes at Olathe, Kansas. The Indian bricklayer laid nearly all the million and more bricks, and Pampans declared that he worked so fast it kept three men busy hauling the bricks to him, and even then he would sometimes be without bricks.Much of the original brick paving remains in the business district today.
