Description: Kemnay Quarries. Aberdeenshire. Handling stone by means of crane. A large block of granite is being hoisted to a slightly higher level in the quarry. The crane is almost certainly electric-driven. Other cranes working in the quarry at the same time were steam-driven. Note the coils of pneumatic hose and chain on the left and the quarryman in the centre using a pneumatic drill on a granite block.
