Interesting link, Seaduction... but whoever it is got it wrong. Gabriola Island is a few miles distant, and all the quarry/pulpstone/pillar references are actually to do with Newcastle Island, currently the park.

This park has many kms of trails, several quarry ruins, footings of old canneries, was a significant coal mining area (hence the name).. Coal shafts and tunnels run under the sea between Naniamo and Newcastle, and an old ventilator shaft still stands.

A former Union Steamships tour stop, the original dance hall still stands and is often rented out for parties and weddings. Campsites, passenger ferries, camp floats for 60 odd boats and dozens of mooring buoys round out one of BC's premier sailing destination.
The palms do throw one off. I saw some similar palms in Dublin, Ireland in 2009 in April. I have pictures, too. I found a website for the historical society of Gabriola which talks about the sandstone quarries as well. From late 1800 till 1936. Its this link: Gabriola Historical and Museum Society: Collections - Industry

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!

Looks a little like Moffett Field, but I don't think the hangar is that close to SF Bay.
