Transporting granite blocks for King Alfreds statue to Penryn Station, Penryn, Cornwall. 1901
Fowler traction engines 7974 and 9016 are pictured hauling blocks of granite from one of the Mabe quarries to Penryn Station, for onward transportation by train to Winchester, Hampshire. The nearest engine bears a plate with PENRYN. The engines were owned by the granite merchants Freemans of Penryn who supplied two large granite blocks, one of 54 tons and one of 48 tons, to form the pedestal and base for the statue of King Alfred the Great in Winchester. The statue was designed by Sir William Hamo Thornycroft and stands at the eastern end of The Broadway, close to the site of the citys medieval East Gate. Photographer: Unknown
