This page has a total of 3 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.

Not the best photo, hand-colored and not very sharp in the first place. Blurred edges left and right, quite many scratches and damages to the photo itself, but still a good idea on how Gold Hill looked around September 1899 when this photo was taken. There is handwriting saying Copyright 1899 by E.A. Yelton, Photographer at 357 E. Bennett Ave., with what appears to be written Sunday Sep. 20-99 below there, but September 20, 1899 was a Wednesday, August same year has a Sunday 20th, but I am not sure what to trust, the date or the day, hence I went for the date and thought the Day was just a calculating error from whoever wrote the date.
* Near lower left-hand bottom/corner is the Cripple Creek Depot structure of Midland Terminal.
* Near lower right-hand side is seen part of the Midland Sampler with a string of boxcars in front of, and its Office Structure east of the Sampler building.
* Up on top of Gold Hill, is seen the Half Moon Mine structure, nearly 2/5 in from left-hand side and a small bit more than 2/5 up from bottom. Painted reddish and seen partly sideways, with some lighter shades of some image damages poking into the sky from it.
* Further to the right of the Half Moon is the structures of the Anchoria Leland Mine seen about middle of view sideways and a small bit more than 2/5 up from bottom. It's look make it an easy mine to spot I think.
* Even further to the right, a little lower than ridgeline of Gold Hill, is seen the Moon-Anchor Mine, a little bit more than 1/3 in from right-hand side and about 3/8 up from bottom.
Several other shaft houses are seen, but their names escape my memory for the time being, neither them, or any other the structures in this view, is really useful for any other purposes then to see where on God Hill they was located, hard to use them for a modelling purpose for instance and there is not much details to see.

Quite a nice side look of the Matoa Company's Half Moon Mine shaft house, this would have been the west side of the structure. The low structure part in front left is ore bins sloping down to a road as per a 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance map. I think it is the top of Globe Hill that one see on the left side of the background, with Iron Clad hill at right, further back.
