Today's PHOTO FRIDAY is of the Maryland Green Marble Co. in Cardiff. The site was famous for its own mineral resource, "Green Marble" or what geologists term a serpentinite. Pictured here was the quarry in full operation in 1923.

I have a green marble mantle and hearth in my house built in 1927.

I have a green marble mantel and hearth on my fireplace. The house originally had green marble front steps, but they deteriorated and were replaced with brink in the early '80s.

We had MD Green marble steps in our basement at our house in Street. House was built in late 1700’s.

Our house has a green marble fire place as well. Others are brick. 1859

I do remember that stretch of houses and a “fish market” behind one of them. If we had a bad day fishing, my dad and uncle would stop there to make up for our loss. It didn’t happen often but my brother and I really enjoyed going to those places.

I remember my grandparents takung there when I was young.

Fond memories of riding down there from Golden Vein, thanks for sharing! Looking for photos of the Village of Shuresville, by chance do you have any?

Bring on these wonderful pictures of Harford co past

Are these buildings still standing? Would this have been on the road along the river near Lapidum Landing?

Great pic!

I see that the Bel Air building is boarded up Is it still in use

My mom used to take my brother and I there for lunch in the 70’s. We would sit out back at the picnic table and I would always get the shrimp in a basket.

Worked at the Gas station down the road and go there for lunch
