Granite Spiral

[click image to enlarge]

This stone staircase at Fort Warren was built sometime between 1833 and 1861 . . . it has stood the test of time. What a gorgeous piece of design, engineering and stone work. Quincy granite workers had a large role in the making of this fort on George's Island. This is my contribution to the Monochrome Monday sharing. Click here to see more black and white images.

Just superb! One can see clearly the condition of the granite and the play of shadow and light draws one right up the staircase!
