This view at mining operations on Bull Hill, is hampered sadly by the fact that the paper this postcard is made on is one of those not so good one, and while it scanned useful it is not very good as the dark areas are just dark, and there is some silvery like parts in those darker area, also messing with my scan.
   The scene itself is an interesting one, as it captures and identifying some of the mines at this area of Bull Hill, also shows the Golden Circle trackage in this area, with lots of small mine operations around on the ground, with homes and houses spread around and growing huge dumps.
   In upper right corner the American Eagle Shaft House and mine operation is seen marked as 'Eagles' while further down along the right-hand side, the Ore-House of the Shurtloff No. 2 Mine is seen about 2/5 down – this had a side-spur, leaving the mainline of the Golden Circle about halfway up the route around Bull Cliffs on the south side, pieces of that spur is seen in lower foreground just above the word 'Cripple' in the card's title text along the bottom of this postcard view.

I never seen this view as a photograph, only as the printed image used for this postcard and two kind of postcard folders, where there where small images included inside one larger postcard view. This is a nice view of the large operations going down at the Findley Mine, with several smaller dumps seen in the distance, all on Bull Hill, looking westerly.
   In the foreground several railroad cars on spurs belonging to the Golden Circle 3-foot railroad can be seen, and I would suspect the home seen in lower right is considered to be part of the Independence townsite even if I can't really see the town itself as that is outside the view at bottom.
   The first two tracks from bottom up is sidings used to collect ore from horse run wagons from the many smaller mines in the area, while the spur just going to the bottom part of the right-hand bottom corner is a spur I've seen being connected to mine named Deadwood No. 2 if I've read images I've seen correctly. While the track going of into the right-hand side of the lower right bottom, that is part of the Golden Circle mainline that used to run passed the Independence Depot and unto the end loop at Vista Grande, sort of outside the view twice the width or so of this card to the right, higher up, behind the hill.
