Written on verso: "A Disappearing River at San Antonio de los Baños . . . Once made the old town famous as a bathing resort takes a plunge into a black cavern and disappears from sight. It is needless to say that the bathing was done at a respectful distance from this dark abyss. To keep the unwary traveller from stepping off the brink, a neat stone wall has been erected. San Antonio is one of the most interesting of the old inland towns and the tourist will do well to make it a visit if only to see this freak of nature. Some sixty miles South a small stream makes its appearance from a rocky hillside said to be at least a part of this river but this has not been proven."
