Polkanuggo Quarry, Stithians, Cornwall. 1903-1904

A general view of Polkanuggo Quarry with steam traction engine BETA No 483 and workers posing for the camera. The traction engine was made around June 1885 by John Fowler of Leeds and was owned by Freeman & Sons. The figure to the left of the steam engine, with his hand on the stone being lifted, was identified as James Ginger Opie, the Quarry Manager at Polkanuggo by his great granddaughter in 2004. The children in the right foreground include his two sons. Part of the Freeman & Sons, Penryn Collection. Photographer: Unknown
