Another snapshot of Balancing Rock in Colorado turned up recently so LOST GALLERY is reviewing an old page where this tourist attraction and others were featured.
Collectors of old photographs know that while it would be unusual to find the same people in photographs found in different shops and different states, it is much more common to find photographs of the same places in the snap shots. Pikes Peak in Colorado and Umbrella Rock in Tennessee are good examples.
Here are some pictures of Balancing Rock in Colorado's Garden of the Gods found in otherwise completely unrelated snapshots. As is often (but not always) true of these tourist mementos, the photographs are taken from exactly the same point.
Can't get enough? Here is a look at the previous LOST GALLERY page:
The Tourist Camera
Now here are some related old shots from around the net from various unrelated sources just for comparison purposes. Note these are probably all the same rock, just different angles with the camera.

THE KIDS It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
