Genuine Curteich-Chicago “C.T. American Art”

The description states:

FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH, STARK CAVERNS

HIGHWAY 54 — ELDON, MISSOURI

One of the truly different type formations found in Stark Caverns. A fine example of water cutting through solid limestone depicting the effects of erosion — a marvel of mother nature. Thousands drink from this fountain each year.

–The attraction has been renamed Fantasy World Caverns. This feature was constructed from a flowing spring in the cave to create a large pool with a controlled outflow.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
