Title on Image:
Bull Hill Mines as Seen From the Portland No. 3 Shaft
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.
