The History Mystery for May is presented by the Sierra Mono Museum in North Fork. We would like to know who the people are in this photograph, where they are, why they are all gathered, and any other interesting facts anyone may know. (click photo to enlarge)
This picture is currently on display at the museum and we would like to add information to it.

Follow-up to History Mystery #39
Along the Fresno River just above Hensley Lake we came across this group of rocks stacked between two large boulders, after exploring the other side we found several holes carved out in the rocks which we believe to be anchors for floor joists.
We know that according to a David Rumsey Historical map dated 1891 there was once a Rauls or Ralls Mill located in this area.
Our question from the audience is: Does anyone know what this foundation was used for? Was it Rauls/Ralls Mill? If so, what was the purpose of the mill?
