Marble quarry derrick and blocks.

Marble quarry derrick and blocks. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


A derrick with ladder attached is held in place by eight guy lines. Several large blocks, possibly two feet by two feet by twelve feet in size, are stacked on skids. Two men stand by the blocks, many of which are numbered – 263, 181 A2, 150 A2 etc. To the left of the photograph is what could be the chimney of the steam hoist house.
