Alton Illinois Postcard | ... Death of Piasa Bird, Alton, Ancient Indian Antique Picture Postcard
The Blue Pool, Alton, IL. Fencing/gates/locks - but I peeped through & took this photo. It's not bottomless, once drained - many cars/train car/& many other found. Again filled up. Said to be very haunted - some see ghosts out near the great river road in this area. **A site of legend, the blue pool is said by many to be bottomless, leading young people to jump off the nearby "bluffs" into the pool and suffer serious injury or death.
