Graduated Slate Shipment from Vermont

Thirteen squares of graduated slate weighing some 37,000 lb. arrived from Vermont today.

Agnes Scott College has generously allowed the occasional use of the neighboring driveway south of the Dauton House.  Staging within the confines of a city lot has been logistically challenging to say the least and this has been a valued co-operation.

Slater Manuel Avila beginning the installation process.  Manuel, an employee of the R. W. Stokes Slate Roofing Company, has been slating for more than 20 years and is personally featured in Joseph Jenkins' "Slate Roof Bible."
