Continued on Page 1 2 3

The photographs in this section were taken in late May 2012. This is one of the stops on the San Diego County granite quarry tour that Jeff McGreevy took my husband Pat and me on that covered the Santee/Lakeside/Grossmont, et al. areas.  Jeff is a member of the Santee Historical Society and the San Diego Gem and Mineral Society.  (You can reach Jeff via his email located above if you’d like to contact him directly.) See the first page of this photo tour for historical information and photographs of the old Simpson-Pirnee Co. Santee granite quarry. Peggy B. Perazzo
