History of Cobblestones
Cobblestones were used in the early years as pavement for streets. “Cobble is from the English word “cob” meaning rounded lump. It was originally referred to as any small stone rounded by the flow of water. Smooth stones taken from river beds were used to create streets.
Today in older cities like Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, Cobblestone streets can still be found. Cobblestones have been replaced by quarried granite known as Belgian blocks or (Setts). The word cobblestone is often used incorrectly. These blocks were roughly rectangular stones that were laid in regular patterns.
This gave a smoother ride for carts than cobbles, although in heavily used sections, such as in yards and the like, the usual practice was to replace the Setts by parallel granite slabs set apart by the standard axle length of the time. Cobblestone streets gradually gave way to Macadam roads, and later to Tarmac, and finally to Asphalt concrete at the beginning of the 20th century.
We also carry a wide range of other materials including: Bluestone, Brazilian Slate, Decorative Rock and Stone, Granite, Imported Brownstone, Krishna Sandstone, Limestone, Paving Stones, and Flagging, Quartzite, Stone Accessories, Stone Veneers, Travertine, and Wallstone.
