Title on Image:
Squaw Mountain Tunnel, Arequa/Eclipse Gulch.
This is a view up Arequa Gulch as per image info, but in my mind this is also Eclipse Gulch as the Economic Mill will some years after this view is taken, be built not far upstream from this location as per info on my 1903 topographic map showing location of many hundred mines. They would practically be neighbors, and where one gulch ends and the other starts, I've never fully understood.
Either way, the image shows a large crib wall construction and part of what I believe shall become an ore house, but might have just stayed as an ore-bin. It looks like a massive operation and the tunnel seems to have been a long one based on the claim map, but never a good success I think.
