Workers of the Queenston Quarry Company


Black and white photographs of the employees of the Queenston Quarry Company, working on the site. The limestone quarry near St. David in Niagara township was operated by the Queenston Quarry Company, and produced both crushed stone and building stone. The crushed stone was used for building purposes, roads and the building stone included dimension blocks, bases and cut stone. The cut stone is shaped by two gang saws and one diamond saw. An average of 40 men was employed (in 1920). Charles Matthew Lowrey [Lowery] was president and manager of the Queenston Quarry Company between 1905 and 1924 and G. W. McKeown, secretary.
