Hello friends,
I am in the process of creating the history of my dream model railroad.  I have decided on modeling Maine narrow gauge in about the year 1920.  The problem so far is that there isn't much of a reason to build a railroad in turn of the century mid-coast Maine.  I have finally set my mind on extending the Maine granite industry out into the early 20th century.  After some research into the subject, it seems like the internet is devoid of anything about old timey granite quarrying.  The only semi-helpful piece of info came from a site vaguely talking about a place called halls quarry up by bar harbor.

Anyway, anybody know of any good sources for historical quarrying information?
