Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
It seems like a scholarly article with several references, including a survey for property on Gabriola for the quarry. So there's no old sandstone quarries on Gabriola, eh?
Yeah.. sorry... learn something every day..
I guess the difference is that there's been little/no promotion or advertising of the former Gabriola sandstone industry. There does appear to be specific references to Gabriola locations, and the pulpstone references include Newcastle.
All the info available at the Newcastle quarry doesn't, IIRC, mention Gabriola but do mention the SF Mint and other buildings hence my confusion..
Thanks for that...eh?
Awaiting a picture of somewhere in Tasmania!
