Rubio Canyon Trail and Staircase

There were nine waterfalls that bejeweled the canyon just behind the platform at Rubio Pavilion. Multiple stairways allowed hikers and tourists to climb up and see nature’s wonders like in this image of Ribbon Rock Falls. The pure mountain water was not just beautiful; tourists and picnickers could also safely and enjoyably consume it. In addition, it powered a Pelton water wheel, which sometimes generated electricity for the incline. Postmarked in Los Angeles, this divided-back card is dated April 28, 1908 and was sent to Los Angeles as well.
