    My Dad made me work in factory's during school holidays so I would understand why a Trade was so important, watching this brought back some memories and makes me so glad I listened to Dad.

    Ralph you would have to visit Malta to really get a visual concept of the size of the stone there, but this may help you get a small conceptual idea
