Picnic in 1930's or 1940's

Hi Richard,

This is a really great picture. I was wondering if you could say where it came from? It's really amazing how the park looks nearly the same as it does now, and it seems like a real convergence between the 30s or 40s, and the 21st century. I was wondering if there is any way to pinpoint the exact time and location? I really enjoy all of the history you have gathered here, and I appreciate the time you have put in; it must have taken a long time to go through microfish and photos.

This is feature in the Ramada Area at South Mountain Park. All the way around to the left in the SE corner of the big group ramada area.

Last time I saw it, the tree had grown quite a bit and partially covered it.

South mountain was originally called mount sapoa mountain of Mercy. Tombs can still be found on South Mountain.
Jeff woolwine was the first person to discover and prove that the petroglyphs on south mountain are ufo sightings. Look for his book. The phoenix lights petroglyphsinthesky landscape for the spirits. See photos of the tombs and understand what the rock art truly means.
