This photo isn't Dinorwic either - it looks to be the old Penybryn quarry, absorbed by Dorothea quarry in the 1930s. Alternatively, it could be Aberllefenni, Corris but Penybryn looks more likely.

Definitely Penybryn! (The steps in the top right of the pic were still there when I last visited a few years ago).
