windmills Sickle cut millstone photo - Somerville, Massachusetts

There's no description, but the photo of a millstone makes for a dramatic image. The stone is sickle cut, and has been turned into a memorial to Jean Mallett's windmill, 1704-1747 (I think - its not totally clear due to the angle the photo was taken at). I'll have to find out where that mill was!

Update:[17/2/04] The millstone is at Powderhouse Square in Somerville, Massachusetts. It commemorates the mill which still exists (in the form of a powder house) in nearby Nathan Tufts Park.
