: Our company salvaged the large slabs of granite stone used as curbing in Union Square about eight years ago. I am trying to locate where they were originally quarried from, who the original masons were and hopefully some photos of when they were in place. Any information about them would be greatly appreciated.

: Thank you.

It is likely that they came from Raymond, Madera County. The nearest large granite quarry that dates to the correct era. I've asked the proprietors if they know.
