This page has a total of 2 images, as of 17.12.2021 (17:21:08).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This wonderful 1903 view from near top of Bull Hill is taken in Northwesterly direction and looks across Ironclad Hill where the Londonderry Mine can be seen about 1/3 up from bottom 2/5 in from left-hand side. In addition top part of Globe Hill is seen at about middle top/down left-hand side, with several mines there sort of visible, like what I think is the Plymouth Rock Mine with the Deerhorn or Gold(en) Crater mine and what I think is the Lady Stith Mine, and also some of the structures belonging to the Stratton company. In addition, about middle top/down and 2/5 in from right-hand side there is a string of Box cars along a spur on the Short Line at Hoosier Pass.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment.

   This DPL view (Call No. P-2014) are taken from Ironclad Hill, most likely in 1895 or early 1896. Wintertime as there are pieces of snow on the ground. It appears also in an 1896 book which helps date it somehow.
   In the foreground there is a longer Log based structure I feel is the same Deerhorn Mine Boarding House as I have in another picture in my collection (P-02433), while in the background is the top of Globe Hill with its small community called Summit in my 1903 USGS topographic map, and showing the Deerhorn and Summit Mines as per title in the 1896 book.
   About 1/3 down from top and the left most structure is the Shaft House of the Deer Horn, or Deerhorn mine, making then the one near center of the view the Summit mine operation, but which claim that is on is hard to tell as several claims belonging to the Summit Mining and Milling Company. To the right climbing the hill is the various Log and frame houses of miners and their families. In foreground right some mining machinery is seen on a dump that I think is one of the Plymouth Rock claims.
