Title on Image:
Cresson Mine C.C. District, Colo.
This is a different look from what I am used to see the Cresson Mine as, sadly it is sort of faded on the sides and not the sharpest view around, but still I was able to enhance it a little bit. Based on the whitish stuff hanging on the water-tank seen about 1/3 down from top and about 4/9 in from right-hand side, this is a winter-shot as I can't understand that whitish stuff as anything but ice!
Raven Hill makes out the background, and once more I am stuck in what is the name of that mine having the Ore-House seen near top and just to the right of the Cresson Head-Frame… So, I went hunting and comparing various views and my ca. 1903 topographic map from USGS with many numbers linking to mines, I am pretty confident that this is the Mary L. Mine with its dump, Head-Frame and Ore-House seen in so many Cresson Mine views.
And info I have also indicates that the Cresson Mine is located on the central block of the Mary L and Draper claims, making this scene most likely showing two claims on the same group of mines.
