Like many smaller chips, it was brought in from a quarry at Purcell's Cove to be used as blocks for the Shubenacadie Canal. This one even has a drill mark to allow a stonemason to split it with a wedge and feathers. Perhaps it split wrong, because it was used here instead of on the canal itself. https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920437 199920437 It's faint, but intriguing - someone has etched a long line of tally marks in this stone, which was near the top of the north foundation wall. https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920438 199920438 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920439 199920439 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920440 199920440 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920441 199920441 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920442 199920442 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920443 199920443 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920444 199920444 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920445 199920445 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920446 199920446 https://www.industrialheritagens.ca/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199920447 199920447
