River Stone

We were walking through Bay View Park in the Perth suburb of Mosman Park recently, and stopped to admire the view of the Swan River. According to an information sign (one of many in Mosman Park), the steep downward slope in the foreground was the site of Perth’s first quarry. Stone from here found its way into some of the heritage buildings along Saint George’s Terrace, as well as the foundations of the road itself.
