Hand Delivered

To save postage the latest issue Stonechat put out by the North Wales Branch of the Dry Stone Walling Association was hand delivered to me by Sean Adcock when we were both in California.

The cover is a picture of Griffith Griffith quarryman from Wales who supplied all the granite for the building of Fort Point in San Francisco from his stone operation at the Big Gulch Quarry in Folsom California. The article about him appears on page 27.

Amongst the several other interesting articles in the publication is the first part of a piece on bridges written by Patrick McAfee.
There is also an article about the first Clawdd that was built at last year's 'Festival of Stone' near Montreal Quebec.
