Cedar Park, Tx

My grandfather, Frank Mills Whitehead (right, w/broom) A&NW RR Agent in Cedar Park. Limestone from E. Cluck & Bros quarry. Date still undetermined, approx 1900-1910.
Ken - why is your grand dad sweeping off the stone? Interesting photo. I'd hate to have to tie down the brakes on that car - dig the brake wheel!
 
He is sweeping the loose/small rocks off, a safety thing (as I was told).
