Description

A commercially printed color slide showing the observation deck at the Blowing Rock. The Blowing Rock is a long-standing attraction near the town of the same name. Strong wind gusts at the site can cause some objects thrown off the rock to blow back upwards. According to local legend, a tragic pair of Native American lovers were reunited after one jumped off the rock and was miraculously blown upwards to safety. An inscription printed on the front of the slide reads: "The Rock Gift Shop, Blowing Rock, N.C.; 9. The Blowing Rock."
