Title on Image:
Vindicator Mine Shaft No. 2 and Town of Independence
Andrew James Harlan
Sadly the base for this view is a terrible misprinted quality type of photo, kind of OK on a distance, but then, awful and not sharp at all! Just sad. The view is a cropped view of a photo by A. J. Harlan, and I performed quite some work over it to try bringing out the best possible view from a damaged source.
In the foreground is the middle part of the town of Independence, located on the southeastern part of Bull Hill and the southwest part of Bull Cliff, or East Bull Hill as I also seen it named. In background left is the Shaft House of the Vindicator No. 2 mine, large shaft house that also extended out of the view at left, located at the end of a switchback spur down to the Orehouse of the Vindicator No. 1 seen about 1/3 from top and about 1/3 in from right-hand side. The No. 1 Shaft structures are to the left of said orehouse, and the Lillie Mine structures pokes up behind those again. Several smaller Shaft houses are seen near right-hand side and upper half part. I think the upper one, about 1/3 down from top and in from right-hand side the same length as structure itself, that this is the La Bella Mine, but the other I have no name to offer.
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.
Image Note:My Collection; Photographs. Cropped, straightened, enhanced version of my 300dpi scan. I did procure the colored edition of this image. Source was bad quality.
