Greetings -

I was looking for the site of this rock and found your website:

https://www.digitalcommonwealth.org/search/commonwealth:dj52xf01x

Now as to your list of unknowns, I have two postcards showing the falls labeled as Z108. One is an exact duplicate of that photo and labeled "Brown's Falls, Granville, Mass." The second is almost the same but missing the man and dog. It is called "The Falls, Granville, Center, Mass." Not a lot to go on but may provide some clues.

Regards,

Jim Moore
