While not being a great quality wise card on the image part, it still is an important view as it names the group of soldiers posing for the base negative of this scene, and to me that was important as I have a photograph from a slight different angle, same group of men, and now, thanks to this card, I have a link to who they might have been! Even of there is still confusion as I also know about a photograph of this scene, as found on Denver Public Library website as Call Number CHS.X9304.
   This card also helped me dig up the name of the Shaft House seen about straight up from the hat of the Officer up front, as that is the Chesapeake Shaft House, while those further back is too hard to make out. Cut off at the top more left, is the bridge carrying the Golden Circle track across the Midland Terminal tracks, and that is the info I have.

This badly looking image is the best I have of this mine, the Shaft House of the Chesapeake Mine as it was seen in the background of a photograph of a troop of Soldiers, possible the Denver City Troop, as they posed at Camp Goldfield sometimes around 1903. The Mine is in the center of the view and was located on Battle Mountain below the point where the Golden Circle crosses over the Midland Terminal tracks to work itself up passed the Portland Mine, and just outside the bottom part the tents of Camp Goldfield start showing up.
