PICTURE # 30 MISC1


PELTON STONE QUARRY ON COUNTYLINE ST. Taken in early 1890s. During the early 1940s a couple of kids, of whom this writer was one, took an old rowboat and measured the depth in numerous places. Using a heavy rock and some bindery twine they found it nearly uniform at 40 feet from the water surface. Judging from the height of the ladders in the background they were not down to this level yet when the photo was taken.

Today the PHARM and PIZZA HUT occupy the land at the top of the far bank in this picture, as well as a number of single family homes. To your left are the Park Shore apartments. To your right are more single family homes.
