The U.S. Geological Survey in 1923 noted that Hallowell Granite lends itself remarkably well to delicate ornamental work and statuary. It is known for its fine grain and light gray color.
"Spring and Summer" are examples of corner sculpture incorporated into a building. Ornate granite cornices were produced as well. Although the destination of "Spring and Summer" is not known, similar pieces produced by the Hallowell Granite Works can be found as part of the Hall of Records in New York City.
