Back-breaking work on Keele Street...

'Lifters' ~ not stone masons

These two young, good-looking lads were hard-at-it last week on Keele Street, just south of the Anglican Church, in King City.   The cut-stone retaining wall on the east side of the street is being rebuilt after decades of service and at the same time as new sidewalks are being installed.   I told these hardy lads that they looked rather young to be stone masons.   One of them replied: "We're not stone masons - we're "lifters".   Candid and charming...well done guys.
