Abstract:
In 1874 I imported of J.B. White & Brothers, 400 barrels of Portland cement and considered it a big consigment, and the same year laid for the City of Boston a few hundred feet of sidewalk, which my partner, Mr. Henry Taylor, of London, christened "Hydrolithic" pavement. Who in those days could have foreseen the tremendous industries which would be evolved through the use of Portland cement?
