This page has a total of 8 images, as of 21.03.2019 (00:24:41).
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.

I have the known postcard versions of this view marked as a Tomer Jacob Hileman photo, but I am unable to find my source for that, so I think that I might be mistaken in that credit to him as a photographer. So, I would say that the image source is from an unknown photographer, at least till I find my source, or a card view with his name on it. By time of writing this [13.04.2018] I know about 5 editions of this colored/painted view, three of them postcards with a millimeter or two differences on one of the sides, and two of them I have in postcard folders.
   The view itself is of the massive Shaft House of the Anchoria Leland Mine, up on Gold Hill, with a dump trestle in the foreground and partly seen roof of the Ore-house on the right-hand side in the foreground. I have a little bit of hard time understanding the 1896,  1900 and 1908 Sanborn maps showing this mine structure, as the north direction changes on the 1908 map, and the scale of the structure changes as well, but mostly I think this structure was more or less looking like this from at least 1896 till passed 1908, as it don't show up on the 1919 Sanborn map from the District.

I've seen this image used three times, for this card and another postcard where there are a couple of extra millimeters visible on the right-hand side, plus I've seen it used in a postcard folder.
   The view is from the railroad side of the Mary McKinney mine, showing several box cars parked on sidings nearby and at the mine itself. It also shows part of Anaconda at right-hand side about 1/3 up from bottom, the part that survived the 1904 fire, as I see no signs of structures at left side of image, and I believe there should been visible something there if the town was still there.
   The tracks in the foreground belong to the Midland Terminal, but the Mary McKinney mine was once served by dual gauge as the F. & C.C was also having a spur to the mine, entering in from left-hand side, running parallel with the Shaft House to serve that and the coal bins at the power plant seen with all those smokestacks to the right of the shaft-house.
   Behind the smokestacks of the Power House of the Mary McKinney you can see the Ore House of the Anaconda Mine, located down by the F. & C.C. yard in Anaconda, but image is too bad to really make out any details. Which is sad, as up on Gold Hill seen in the background, there is seen the Shaft House of the Anchoria-Leland about 1/4 in from right-hand side and about same from top, with the Ore-House and trestle of the Lexington Mine seen just to the right of the Anchoria-Leland.
   Or even more sad, there is visible a mill on the hill side above the Low Line grade, seen about  1/3 down from top and 1/7 in from right-hand side, a mill I believe might be known as Anaconda Mill, but I might be mistaken where that mill was located as info been a little scarce, but it fit the location of west slope Gold Hill.

This view towards the Anchoria Leland Mine on Gold Hill is marked as a Julia Skolas photo, but 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…
Either way, it is a good view of the side of this structure, and while my card has some damages to it, it is not that severe thankfully. The Head Frame in foreground right, lower right-hand corner, is at this time of writing [06.07.2017] one of the many unknown smaller mine operations.

This view of Gold Hill from a street in southern Cripple Creek is mislabeled to be an early Victor scene for some unknown reason. Being this is from a printed card in a small more modern postcard folder it is not the greatest quality, but one gets an idea of the area it pictured. I've been unable to pinpoint the street in the foreground, but I think it might be the First Street, possible south Colorado Ave., but I doubt it as this don't look that far up the hill.
* Either way, about center left/right and 1/3 down from top, behind the two-story house in foreground, on get to see the north half of the Cripple Creek Sampler, located up along the M.T. roadbed, with the Short Line railroad below it, having come around the hill at right hand side. Incidentally, the original locating of the sampler was along the F. & C.C. grade seen just below the top/down center on the right-hand side, and would have been hidden by the same two-story house.
* About 1/3 down from top, and 1/3 from left-hand side, a long structure will be seen, that is the Trolley Barn for the High/Low Lines of the Electric System of the Short Line railroad. The big dump just right of the Trolley barn I think is part of the Cripple Creek & Gold Hill Deep Mining & Development Company operations.
* Straight up from the chimney on the before mention 2-story house there is a big dump that I think is part of the Midget operations.
* About center left/right and not fully 1/6 down from top, above the before mention Midget, is the characteristic shape of the large Shaft-House of the Anchoria-Leland mine seen against the sky at top of Gold Hill.

Sadly, a not that great printed image of the Moon-Anchor mine structure on Gold Hill. One can see the shape and count windows, and that there are several structures seen here, but not much of details can be seen. I think the smaller peaked roof structure seen just below the ore-house part of the Moon-Anchor is the old Anchor Shaft House.
   In the background, just left of the two large smokestacks, the shaft house of the Anchoria-Leland is seen poking up from behind a dump, and the card is preprinted with 190 so it is made from 1900 onward, and possible the image dated then to 1899 or early 1900.

  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.

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.
