Found on EBay -- Hanging Rock

 Hanging Rock
Oct. 17, 1901, Matilija Springs

A postcard listed on EBay shows an old Ventura County landmark that has been hidden for decades. The famous Hanging Rock was submerged by the reservoir of Matilija Dam, built to hold the Ventura River. The Matilija Coalition is trying to have the dam removed.

At left, a Oct. 17, 1901, Times story reports the beauty of Matilija Springs.

Bidding on the postcard starts at $5.99.
