Blood Ledge – The Definitive View

Elizabeth Blood (widow of Joseph Blood) sold the quarry and lands to Col. Jonas French for the sum of $2,500.00.

The Rockport Granite Company’s marketing in the early 20th century featured a portfolio of black and white ad slicks featuring major architectural accomplishments using Cape Ann Granite. Below is Plate No.1 Reprinted from the Architectural Record, May 1923.

It features a Charles Cleaves photograph of Blood Ledge, below the ad slick is the photo itself in high resolution.

NOTE: It may take you 2 – 3 minutes to load the image for viewing – it is BIG – like the Granite
