A view of the quarry face showing workers holding the tools of their trade while dressing stones. Blocks of granite are ready to be moved using the cranes based at the edge of the quarry. The photograph was taken before September 1902 when a block of granite weighing 2, 738 tons (claimed to be the largest single block ever quarried) was excavated. Photographer: Samuel John Govier
