Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
When I first saw this view, I knew I had to try my best to win it as to me it was the first look at this part of the District that I ever seen! The hill in background left is the eastern slope of Beacon Hill, making the hill in distance right Guyot Hill. About center sideways and about 2/7 down from the top the Gold Dollar Mine operations are seen, with its high/tall Head-Frame and quite long Ore-House to the right of the head-frame.
   I think this view is taken along the original road between Victor [located sort of behind to the right] & Cripple Creek [located sort of straight into the image], and which ran the hills in Arequa Gulch where this view is from. I also think that the quite large two-story house seen about 3/8 down from top and about 1/4 in from right-hand side is the same house which appears at the top side of the old Arequa Mill images I've seen, making the hillside to the left of the house the former site of the mill. Making this postcard view even more interesting as it links something old to a more modern time, before all this in my modern time is all gone by the huge tailings of the Open Pit Operation in the district…

This view looking north east from a place just south and west for the surface structures of the Gold Dollar Mine on Beacon Hill, also shows the valley Arequa was in, with Guyot Hill prominent in the background and several other mines seen. But of course, I wish this was a true photograph, because then I would most likely been able to better get a view of the finer details lost in this view here. There are several things of interest, from a better look at the Gold Dollar in the foreground with its dump, to the Elkton Mine seen about 1/3 from top and about 1/3 in from right-hand side with its huge dumps, to the railroad lines running passed it, or many of the other mines hinted in this view. But sadly, this is what I have, where someone took a photo of a printed source somewhere, and I ended up getting my hand on that negative of that photo years later.
