Description: White Moss Quarry, 4.8 km. south-east of Thurso. Caithness. View of a storage area. Thin flags, used as green ornamental stone-slates, ready for export. Observe the characteristic Caithness 'flag fence' (field wall) in the background, the slabs are set in the ground on edge in a tight-fitting arrangement. This green stone slate was often in much demand for artistic work on churches and public buildings. The rock is Devonian (Old Red Sandstone) Caithness Flagstones.
