On the back side of this picture is the name of a Donna Panik and her address where this was mailed to her. I gave him that information and this is what he told me.
Tom Kollenborn - Lost Dutchman Gold
Here goes Cindy....That is a photo of Uncle Ezra, a winter visitor who arrived in the Junction each winter during the late 60's and 70's. He often played the role of a local prospector. I remember Vic Panik and I believe he was related to Donna. He wrote a book titled "Laughter In Hell," if I remember correctly.
So this is actually someone that he knew, as was the woman to whom this photo was mailed to.
So although there is not a big story to go along with it, at least now the mystery is solved. I guess he was just playing a role.
