Description: Kemnay Quarries. Aberdeenshire. General view of the mason's yard. Stockpiled finished stone in a variety of sizes all neatly labelled can be seen in front of the masons' sheds. A steam train is seen mounted on a light railway. In the distance is part of No. 2 Quarry with several blondins stretched across the quarry. The roofs of the sheds could open to allow the travelling steam crane to deposit stone inside for the masons to work on.
