There has been a very marked change, during the last few years, in preparing materials for concrete purposes. We seldom see the old obsolete method of sending a team to a river bank, or put for gravel aggregate, regardless of size, proportion or cleanliness. We now see a modern factory for handling, sizing and washing the gravel that decreases the cost of handling, prepares it for different kinds of uses, and, best of all, makes it suitable for the purpose.
