Bayside Quarry, c. 1888

Bayside, probably rocks for Jetty, c.1888 (McFarland)

 

A friend of mine has discovered a passion for local history and recently gave a speech in Toastmasters about Flanigan Bros., a company formed in the late 1800s to mine rocks in Bayside for use in constructing the first jetty. Apparently it took about 10 years to build and didn’t even last that long.

I’ll see if he has a copy of his speech and if so I’ll post it here.
