I found a few old pictures while cleaning out some files. This picture shows 7 men standing in front of a granite block that has been loaded on a trailer for transport. The year is 1956 and though the picture says November, it is more likely that it was taken in July or August. This block is estimated to measure 7 feet high by 8 feet wide by 10 feet long and weights upwards of 50 tons.
