Portland Mine. Portland No. 2

The postcard this came from has a date of January 25, 1939 written by hand on the backside with a name that appears to say Lester Ropes Jr. below it, but other than that, dating this view is not that easy I feel. This is the Portland No. 2 Mine/Shaft, with huge crib-wall below holding back massive dumps, I also see several structures further down the slope of Battle Mountain. Sadly, the card is not the sharpest I've seen, and the contrast against the sky is not the best for smaller details, it scanned OK but not great.
I think there is a railroad line still along the crib-wall about center of image top/down, Short Line used to have a side-spur here, but I think it was kept for use by M.T when Short Line got abandon. I also wonder if there is a railroad in the near foreground, about 1/5 up from bottom of this view, it feels like it.Portland No. 2 Mine; Cropped From #C-31; Portland Mines Victor Colo.
