In these three photographs men are hand loading wagons, which moved along temporarily laid tracks. Men were paid according to how much stone they removed, either by the tonne or wagon load. The wagons were then either pushed by the men or, as seen here, drawn by horses to the sorting and crushing machinery



The photograph on the left shows a horse and trunk looking down at the quarry floor, where men are loading rock into trucks.  These trucks, when full, will then be pushed along the temporary tracks which can also be seen on the quarry floor.








The photograph on the right shows men loading a truck with loose rock.  Note the horse pulling the truck and the boiler on the left of the photograph.







The photograph of the left shows the tracks which would have been laid around the quarry to assist with moving the loose rock to the sorting and crushing machinery.
