down on the page. Sorry to have wasted your time/ear to listen to this, I was just trying to get a layout work like I wanted.
This page has a total of 2 images, as of 23.06.2022 (18:36:04).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Image is marked with ''Bull Hill, 1901 Wm. B. James Residence'' in handwritten note below the image, which actually is one photo pasted on top of another unknown photo below it - wonder what that story is about... But that date is wrong, as this image appears in a early 1900 publication and there is snow on ground, it has to be from the winter 1899/1900 making me assume 1899, possible December.
   Quality of photo is bad on the sides, unsharp and reminds me of many Harlan shots. I've also seen this view in a Portland Annual, making me think this is an Andrew James Harlan photo as he took most of those... Came with a cardboard frame which is cropped from the view I share.
   Many Mines are visible, in the foreground are a windlass which is on the Lost Anna lode, also known as Portland No. 3 Shaft. Above there is the mainline of the Golden Circle 3-foot railroad, crossing the High Line grade of the Electric Trolley system and later the Short Line branch line. Just to the left after that bridge is the location of the Hawkeye Mine operations, with the Los Angeles, Colorado City mines further up on the hill at left, about 1/3 down from top of view.
   The Power station of Colorado Electric Power Co. is also visible, same is the structures at the Last Dollar mine, which is seen at about 2/5 down from top at right-hand side. The Blue Bird mine also hugs the side, left-hand side, hiding sort of. The Lucky Guss west Shaft house is marked out about 6/27 from top, with Orpha May just to the left further into the view and at top, in the background about 5/17 in from left-hand side, the American Eagle structures are as a dark blob. More mines, I don't have their names yet, are also seen.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment.

This view is taken from Squaw Mountain, looking north along west slope of Battle Mountain from the saddle between Squaw & Battle Mtn that is down outside view at lower right. In the distance left are Bull Hill mines, where the American Eagle is seen on the skyline about 1/3 in from left-hand side and about 1/7 down from top. Further down – about 2/7 - and to the left is the John A. Logan mine structures seen, while about same distance – just to the right – is the Blue Bird mine structures seen with its almost huge wall on the Orehouse and a tower on one side, left, of the orehouse. More to the right of the Blue Bird are the Orpha May, Lucky Guss and other mines.
   Below those mention mines are the roadbed of the High Line seen cutting through the hillside. Whereas the Dante Mine is located along that track, about halfway between John A. Logan and Blue Bird. Many more mines and mining operations are also seen but which is which is hard to tell.
   In the foreground, a short two car passenger Suburban Train on the 3-foot Golden Circle Railroad is coming down the tracks, passing several small mine operations there on Battle Mountain.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment. Source had flaws, a bit faded, spots, discoloration, not sharp, but I worked over it as best as I could.
