Great photo.

Any indication as to who the photographer was? He would have had to haul a big camera and presumably a tripod up there too. Fine photo!

picture #8104 gives some clues as to how they got to the top Steven. The rope maybe had something to do with it too! Life wasnt fettered by health and safety in 1926.

Forgot to mention that the two masons in the picture are possibly John Johnston and George A Brass
