This is a nice shot of one of the many smaller mine operations, easy to see as there are lot of junk around but not huge dumps – compared to the dumps around the Last Dollar Mine seen in background left against the sky, where the dumps hide the hoist house quite much and the large shaft structure also is partly hidden in the dump area.
   One other fun thing with this view of the Clyde Mine I saw much better in my higher resolution scan, there is actually a man standing at top of the Head frame, seen on the right-hand side, his legs covered by one the braces making up the frame where the wheel are.
   Dating this view is hard, but I would think this view to be from around the 1920's to 30's. I see no view of the Lucky Guess Shaft House; possible the lone Head-frame seen against the sky about 2/7 in from right-hand side and about same down from top is where the eastern shaft house of the Lucky Guess was located.
   The American Eagle Shaft House and Mine is seen against the sky about 4/9 in from right-hand side and about same from top. While between the forefront Head-frame of the Clyde and the background of the Last Dollar Mine, also against the sky, is the tower and roof part of the Orpha May Mine poking up, seen about 4/9 in from left-hand side and about same from top.

This is the second version of this card I've seen, different crop where there is a little more seen at the bottom and on the left-hand side, in terms of a millimeter or three. Marked as H & H, Cripple Creek, 09 – making this a view by either Hileman or Hill as they worked together at this time. I've also seen a version of this view where the left upper side has some hill visible, but both my cards have that missing in the faded distance.
   I think the background right is showing part of what was to become Portland Mill on top of Battle Mountain, while the head frame and high tower like structure in background against the sky just right of the center left/right is from what I'm able to gather, the Portland No. 2 Shaft & headframe, as it looks very much like some other views I have of it. I felt it was too visible from this angle, but I've been unsuccessful to find any other mine in that area to fit, so it must be the Portland No. 2 shaft.
   The railroad track in lower left is the Short Line/High Line roadbed going towards town of Independence and the route down passed Goldfield and into Victor, while the railroad tracks seen nearly buried in the dumps at the Last Dollar mine is the side-spur of the Golden Circle 3-foot track going towards the Vindicator Mines and for a short while the Black Sampler at Victor Pass.

This view of the Last Dollar Mine is photographed same day and time as a more common seen view from nearly same location, where the photographer Harlan as moved closer to the Golden Circle trackage seen near lower left corner, to avoid that telegraph pole in the foreground near right-hand side.
In both views, there is a man dumping an ore-car about 1/4 in from left-hand side on this view, in front of the covered gangway from mine to the ore-house seen near left-hand side. The ore-house was connected to another Golden Circle spur, which also went on to other mines around the town of Independence, while the track in the foreground is the mainline going towards Victor mine high up on Bull Cliffs/Hills.
