Hi Brian,
First, welcome to Freerails.
The Library of Congress site is one you should have a look at especially the HABS/HAER/HALS area see and type "Granite Quarry" into the Search field - turned up 111 entries for me. :bg:

The higher level picture search for all photographic collections at the Library Of Congress website and the same search terms turned up another 40+ photos. 

Be inventive with your search terms - try granite quarrying, slate quarrying, Maine quarrying, Vermont quarrying, granite loading, granite block, quarry crane, quarry machinery, etc.  

If you get lucky the HAER area might have plans...have a closer look at the entries returned. check out the left-hand panel Photos appear first then, plans, other documents

That ought to keep you out of mischief for a while ;)
