In this view of the Gold Dollar ore-house a bell can be seen above each sorting table. This is used to announce to the sorters into which bin ore is to be dumped at any time. Men working at other tables are in this way secured from interruption of their work by having to wait for the ore to be dumped after they hear the ore-car coming above.
   This view gives an idea of the interior of a modern Cripple Creek ore-house, with the men working at the sorting tables. Notice the excellent light obtained by windows in the roof as well as in the side walls. Source text also mention/said to notice the ample radiator provided for heating in winter, but I've yet to see where it is in this view. But, whether I see it or not, the heating is an important item, both so that the ore shall not freeze in the bins, and that the men's hands shall not get too cold from handling it to do efficient work.

This view of the Gold Dollar shaft show how surface tramming is done by electric cars using 3-phase, 550-volt motors. The three trolley wires are mounted in a channel built of boards which can be seen about two feet above the ground at the left of the track in the view. There is not much likelihood of anyone coming in contact with these wires accidentally, protected as they are in the deep channel by the overhanging boards.
   Sadly, the image quality is not good, so it is not easy see details, but there is standing one of those cars at the chute where the underground materials are dumped from the shaft.

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.
