Description: Rubislaw Quarry. Aberdeenshire. Portable pump clearing quarry floor of water. The pump's hose can be seen going up the quarry face; it would extend to the surface. With the quarry being so deep and expansion of the quarry usually downwards, water seeping from the joints (seen as dark stains in some of the other photographs of Rubislaw Quarry) would collect at the low points in the quarry floor.
