View of 2 small children posing at hand mining with rocker box. Young girl is holding on to the handle of the rocker box. She is identified as Helen (Nellie) Gemmell Park. Her brother is holding a secondary use tin dipper. He is identified as James Gammie Park. The photo is probably taken at the upper half of No. 2 Below Discovery Right Limit of Bonanza Creek. Piles of gravel can be seen behind the rocker box.

Inscription verso: Nellie & Jimmie at the Rocker. This is what is used to separate the gold from the gravel.
