Photograph from the Crofton Collection: 'Public works including the Manora Breakwater and the River Son canal system' taken in 1873. The Dhodand Quarries, Bihar were exploited for Kaimur sandstone, a very durable building material. The sandstone occurs in escarpments that overlook the Son River and cliffs along the Ganges. It was quarried at Dhodand before being conveyed by railway to Dehri to be utilised in works connected with the Son Canals in the 1870s.
