Description Crusher at the Reynella Quarry, Reynella, S. Aust., circa 1926. The quarries were the main source of building materials for the roads of the district. In the early days horses and carts were used for transporting the heavy loads but with the arrival of the railway in 1915 this was made it possible to supply further and wider than the local area. A flying fox ropeway was erected to enable the stone to be carried over kilometres from the quarry to the Brighton Cement Company. The quarries were exhausted by the 1950s and closed.
