Steam-powered granite-cutting further revolutionised the industry in the 1830s in Scotland, New England, Cornwall and elsewhere, allowing quarries in these regions to expand their production to supply markets that could be reached by waterways and the new railways. The primary markets were civil engineering works – paving setts and curbs, wharf structures, bridges and railway embankments – but the expanded production of the 1830s also resulted in granite’s use in commercial and institutional buildings in Boston, Penzance and especially Aberdeen.
12 Custom House Tower, Boston, Massachusetts, by Peabody and Stearns (1913–15). 38 overall wall system where moisture can enter but not necessarily escape once it gets into the wall. 6 The use of cement-based mortars was a likely factor in deterioration in one of the largest restoration projects on a major granite building. 7 Given that the older 1840s Custom House base did not require such extensive replacement, a likely cause is that the use of cement-based mortars in the tower (given the date of construction) provided less ﬂexibility in the masonry construction and a more detrimental condition for trapped moisture to go through freeze–thaw cycles, resulting in spalling of the granite.
