Barre Granite Quarry

Town:
Barre
County:
Washington
State:
Vermont

Description:
The typed caption on this historic hand-colored postcard reads, "World's Largest Granite Quarries, Barre, Vt." The quarried granite is in the foreground, which is cut into slanted blocks. There are many ladders over these cut blocks. There is a manmade wall of small granite bricks in a zigzag pattern over the cut granite. Tall poles, possibly high-powered lamps, extend up from the wall. A building is to the right of the image, with a smaller structure in front of it. Various industrial tools and machinery are located throughout the area behind the wall. There are three large piles of granite behind this scene. To the right of the pile on the left is a parking area for workers with automobiles and a road leading away from the quarry. The area visible in the background is wooded with deciduous trees that have begun to change color. Mountains are visible in the background. The season is autumn.
