Floyd Collins
This shot was made a short time before his last venturesome journey thru the mazes the clamminess’s, the murkinesses of Sand Cave, in Cave City, Kentucky, on Feb. 9, 1925. Ten days this gritty and daring mid westerner whose hard luck has stirred world wide interest and sympathy has been pinioned in darkness, wetness and horror under a ten top boulder in the cold entrails of the earth. Neither pains nor expense are being spared to take him living or to retrieve him dead. Rescuers are toiling like sons of Anak to reach him quickly. Photo shows: Collins peering thru a break in one of the clammy and grotesque interior partition of the cavern. Note the crystal formations. A comrade who accompanied the intrepid explorer took this photograph. (AP Photo)
