Historical Photo from 1908

Thank you to Jonathan Heiple of Peoria who provided this photo from an old family album as a gift to Friends of Rocky Glen.

The picture is 5″x 7 ” and of very good detail. There is a ladder leaning against the waterfall section of the Bowl with a woman seated at the ladder base. Mr Heiple wrote that the picture was taken 1908 as part of an artistic photographic collection compile by Elizabeth Van Meter Robers, a Peorian.

The carving of the hand holding the presumed union card is visible. The letters are difficult to read, but if the top three letters are AMA, then it is possibly a reference to the American Mining Association
