My Known Images:
Abe Lincoln
This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer
type of text in order to
push the Entity info
down on the page. Sorry to have wasted your time/ear to listen to this, I was just trying to get a layout work like I wanted.
This page has a total of 4 images, as of 16.07.2019 (10:35:47).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Sadly, being of type Snapshot this image is not the best one around in terms of quality such as sharpness and bring forward what hides in the more darker parts of the image, but the overall scene is quite a nice one, and a workable look at the Surface Structures of the Abe Lincoln Mine in Poverty Gulch with Gold Hill in the background.
   I do not see any signs of the Short Line Roadbed, but I do see a Trolley high up on the high Line, I think it is coming down the line, but the image quality is not good enough to find the Trolley roof pole and see where it is raised up to the wire to tell for sure the direction. But, this helps date this image to be from sometime between January 3, 1898 (when regular Trolley Service to Victor started) and middle of September 1903 when the Original High Line section of the track where the Trolley is located was closed/abandoned.

While this card is not marked, the Text Title has same type of writing as another card with the Young name on it, so I assume it is taken by the photographer named Young.
The Scene is in lower Poverty Gulch, looking towards Gold Hill in the background, with the large dump and operations of the Abe Lincoln Mine seen at the edge of the left-hand side, going into the image towards right. The Dump with a hole in the foreground I can't say at this moment in time [13.06.2017] which claim it was located on, so sorry I can't help with that.
What I can say is that I assume this view to be in the 1930's or so, and there are seen two switch-stands about middle top/down on the right-half-part of this view, where I think the one closest to the right-hand edge is the one for a siding at the M.T. Wye below the old Midland Sampler site, while the one to the left is the one for the upper spur that went to the top side of the same Sampler. There also appears to have possible been a loading dock of woods at the end of the spur near the end of the mine dumps of the Abe Lincoln.

  This image I've also found on the Internet at the Wyoming State Archives Photo Collection, dated as 1903 and photo by J.E. Stimson, which was a photographer of Cheyenne, Wyoming it seems. Sadly, that image is a thumbnail type only but to my eyes they are identical.
  The view itself is of a printed bad quality type showing an overlook over roof tops along Myers Avenue heading into Poverty Gulch below the trestles of the Midland Terminal Wye crossing it, with a freight train either leaving or coming into town, no engine can be seen.
  Can't identify any signs on neither copies of the image that I know about, but I do see the Midland Sampler about 1/3 down from top and about 2/5 in from right-hand side.
  The image Title mentioned Abe Lincoln mine is seen almost at left-hand edge and about 1/3 down from top, with a large dump heading out towards the right of the structures.
  On top of Gold Hill, straight up from the Midland Sampler, is seen the iconic Anchoria-Leland Mine, so easy to pick it out along the skyline.

View is a negative type of Photo taken by a camera of an older type of Photograph, with not the best quality film so it is rather grainy sadly. But, the view is nice, of the Trolley car named Grace climbing Gold Hill high above Poverty Gulch, along the original steep High Line grade.
* The Smokestack poking up near lower right-hand corner behind the Trolley is part of the Chicago Tunnel operation, while the two Head-frame type of mine operations seen just above the lower end/back end of the Trolley is as far as I can tell operations on the May Queen lode claim on the left and the Granite Hill lode claim on the right.
* About middle top/down and about 1/4 in from left-hand side is the structures of the Abe Lincoln Mine, and way down in the gulch one see the M.T. Wye Trestles and to the left of them is the spur to the top of the Midland Sampler seen cutting up the hill from a spur a little down from the Abe Lincoln.
