OLD PHOTOS - Soapstone Quarries - OLD PHOTOS (Nelson County Virginia)

Wanted: Looking for old black and white or tintype photos of quarry operations along the Buffalo River, Nelson County, Virginia. Originally operating as the Buffalo River Soapstone Company, the quarries (2) were later acquired by the Piedmont Soapstone Company. Both companies are now defunct and although photos are believed to exist of the soapstone factory and its various buildings, none have been found to date.

I'm searching for any photos of the Buffalo River Dam, quarry operations, trams or tram-ways, cranes, hoists, hydro-power facilities; the stone cutting factory, or grading station.

Photos will be scanned and returned, or if needed, I will visit your location. Photos are intended for a family album, not for commercial use.

Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated.
