Stonemasons in action

A damaged stone brick has been removed and the stonemason prepares to fit a new specially prepared one. He checks that the measurements of the new stone are correct.

The cavity is moistened with a sponge.
Then a special mortar is applied.

The stonemasons carefully insert the new stone

Final easing of the stone into place and pointing up with mortar.
