This picture came from a collection of pictures from Ethel (Rockwell) (Glover) French, sister to Ray Rockwell. Her first husband was Walter Glover and in the several censuses, it has he and his family living and working in Thompson, as a farmer and a quarryman. The original picture is a black and white 4” X 8” print pasted on heavy gray cardstock. No names are written on the back. There were several active quarries around at the time of Walter Glover and because these pictures were from Ethel French, it is likely that this picture may have been taken at the Company Quarry (owned by Joseph Botts) on Pig Pen Alley Road in Lanesboro or the Hobbs Quarry (owned by the Rockwells) located in Stevens Point. Either way, the picture is unique that it shows the hard labor of quarrying and the lack of sophisticated equipment used to mine the stone from the earth.
