Abstract

"What's in a Picture?" piece on a photograph of six quarry workers employed by the Maine Slate Company at what is believed to be the Burmah Quarry in west Monson, around the turn of the twentieth century. Today the Sheldon Slate Co., formerly the Portland-Monson Slate Co., still extracts slate from Monson, including that used as the headstone of President John F. Kennedy.
