Wooden wall-mounted control panel for No.4 tunnel kiln at Manuel Brickworks. This kiln was installed in 1946, but a similar panel from 1930 is shown in the 1934 catalogue.
There are two boards, one of which has a diagram of the tunnel kiln and one is plain. The plain one was set just below the other and a set of T-shaped wooden blocks with hooks slid in checks between the two. Each block represented a car in the kiln. Paper labels hung from the hooks gave details of the passage of the car through the kiln. [These have been removed and are now stored separately in a box.]
