Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a mason at work in a mason’s yard. He sits in a small wooden shelter working a large saw mounted in a wooden frame to cut through a huge block of stone. On top of the stone are two barrels which drip water into the cut to lubricate and cool the saw.  In the foreground are a pickaxe, a mallet and chisels. In the yard are cut panels of stone, and a finished tombstone and a basin for a fountain. From small woodblock original.
