This 'Private Mailing Card' type of Postcard, published by W. A. Loper in Cripple Creek is not the best start point but it is for now the best full view I have of this scene on Bull Hill. Due to the source being a print-type of postcard, and being less than half sized of a normal postcard, also red-inked, the base quality of the view was limiting what I could get out of it, but this view from west side of the Wild Horse Shaft House is still, as said, a great one as it is a rare view, and one I hope to find as a photograph in good quality one day! I have a cropped edition of this view in another printed source also.
   Regarding the scene, there are three ore-cars at a dump that is growing and a fourth is standing alone further to the right. The Shaft House has a Horse painted on it together with the name 'Wild' above the horse drawing and 'Consolidated G. M. Co.' below the horse drawing – quite cool! The whole structure is a long narrow one, with the Electric Hoist House at the right-hand side and the Ore House at the left-hand side.
   Being this postcard is stamped July 17, 1902, the base pic must be from not later than early July 1902 as it takes time to prepare a postcard print batch with engraving an all. But it is to me impossible to date it further, all I can say is this scene fits the look drawn on a 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance map, making it possible also to be a late 1899 or 1900 photograph.

This view is from Midway along the High Line, or Vista Grande as it also was known as with the end balloon-loop or terminal of the Golden Circle Railroad. It shows a view up Bull Hill towards the Wild Horse Mine at the left and the Gleason Mine at the right. Both part of the Wild Horse Group where the Gleason is known as the Main Shaft, as it is a 3-compartment shaft made on the Bertha lode claim, and was supposed to be connected with a transportation tunnel all the way down to the mill of same company, which never happened.
  Wild Horse on the other hand was a 2-compartment shaft, and had extensive workings as seen on the dumps of the mine as seen on the left-hand side of this view. Dating this view is not easy, it was possible taken winter of 1900, hard to tell.
  I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was gray-toned, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes for the moment.
