Work in the mine

Work in the mine Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The workers in this photograph are all looking at the machine in the center of the quarry. It appears to be on rails and is producing dust, so it is possibily a mechanical drill, drilling regular holes into the marble. The slope above it shows signs that the drill was used on it too, with regular markings on the surface of the rock. To the right are a number of large blocks that may have been removed from the working surface.

The barn north of the quarry in also in the photograph.
