Item Information

Title:
Quarry at Franklin Park, Roxbury, Mass., ca. 1887
Description:
A view of the quarry in Franklin Park in Boston. This may be the quarry on Schoolmaster Hill. The view is from the bottom of the quarry upwards to the top. Workers seem to be examining the stone on the face of the quarry. At the bottom, there are two horse-drawn carts. At the top of the quarry, a car stands on the rails of a track, perhaps either to be loaded or unloaded, in front of a building built on pilings overhanging the quarry.
