We attribute this photo of an intricate petroglyph to Benjamin Markham. Though unsigned, it is similar in presentation to his other real photo postcards. It is identified on the original postcard as being near Wishram, Washington. More modern photos show a combination of red and white paint highlighting the design, which if historic, would make it an unusual combination of petroglyph and pictograph (paintings on the rock surface).

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
