This view towards the Anchoria Leland Mine on Gold Hill is a good view of the side of the Shaft House, and while my card had some damages to it, it was simple to paint them out and create the view presented here. It is a good view to tell the look of this mine from southwest of it, down near the location of the loop on the original High Line.
While this card is marked as a Julia Skolas photo, I saw on my 1200dpi scan that there is some text that is scratched out in the dump part below the small cabin about 1/5 up from bottom. I can't read it though, the job was very well done, but it either hold just a text info about this scene, or possible another name as I've seen it happen before, and I am a little unsure if this is really a Julia Skolas photo or if she only got the rights for it. I wonder this due to the fact I can see the Trolley hanging wire in foreground right, and this part of the loop on the original High Line that was below the Anchoria Leland mine was abandoned in 1903, but Julia Skolas did not arrive in the District before about 1906-1908. The sources various a little, most say 1907, one says 1906/1907 and one say 1908. Hence, I wonder a little if she took this herself or bought the rights from whoever took it a few years earlier…The Anchoria Leland Mine, on Gold Hill
