Took an unexpected and interesting photo shoot request just a few weeks ago…fire hall construction, trucking company, super stacker, stockpiles of aggregate for road works, berm construction…guessed yet? McGregor & Amherst Quarries, the area’s only limestone quarries located in Essex County, part of Walker Industries. With the recent ownership change of the quarry 2 years ago, Walker Industries reach out to their community by highlighting their activities through community newsletters, hence the photo shoot.
It’s a completely different feel to be surrounded by mounting walls that are blasted and excavated to extract aggregate for use in our communities. Stone, sand and gravel – aggregates – all used for the roads we drive on, arenas we skate in and foundations for buildings we learn, work and live in.
Yup…t’was an interesting photo shoot 🙂
