down on the page. Sorry to have wasted your time/ear to listen to this, I was just trying to get a layout work like I wanted.
This page has a total of 13 images, as of 05.05.2019 (20:29:41).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This overview of Victor as seen from somewhere in South-East  has been credited to several photographs, Schedin & Lehman is written on an Image seen at DPL, where also Julia Skolas has her name, but as this view is from after the 1899 fire which took out much of Victor, but before the head-frame of the Gold Coin was covered sometime in 1900/1901 timeframe, I can't see how she can have actually have taken this photo, so I think she bought it and the rights to it – and possible others – from the Schedin & Lehman company after she arrived at the District.
The usefulness of this image is really on the DPL view, as most of the mines are deep into the image and some of them are really not much to actually see anything other than knowing they are in this view in order to help place them in a mental map of the District/area.
* In the foreground left is the mine I've seen a close-up off from the other side, where it then was marked as "Great Central Mining & Milling Co.", and from other sources I have it linked as being named/known as the Maggie Mine.
* About middle bottom/top along the right-hand side is the top part of the Shaft-house of the Strong Mine, with the Victor High-School in front of it.
* About 2/5 down from top and about center left/right is the large smokestack of the Gold Coin mine, with the Head-frame at right of the smokestack – best seen on the DPL large image. This helps date the image except I don't know the date the head-frame was enclosed in the brick structure most common known as the Gold Coin mine.
* Above the smokestack of the Gold Coin, high up on Squaw Mtn. is a dump area seen, there is a small Shaft-house there, again I refer to the DPL as best view, that is the Nellie V. mine.
* About 1/4 in from right-hand side, and about 1/3 down from top, is the large Ajax Mine complex seen, with the big dump out over the hillside of Battle Mountain. Looking at the DPL view one can actually see they are extending the Ore-house towards right in this view.
* Just right of the Ajax is the upper shaft of the Dead Pine, located along the Golden Circle, they did as the Portland Mine did, they have a tunnel over the tracks of the Golden Circle narrow gauge line, except here it is made of wood, not steel as on the Portland property. Can't say it is on the view, I know it is there, seen as a dark spot between Ajax and Dead Pine, but it is too far away to be of any use at all.
* Further to the right, just left of the massive Portland dumps, where the hill curves, there lays the Granite Mine, seen with its Shaft-house and power house, smokestack and all, albeit at a to large distance to be of any good use for a model work, it helps in determining where in the area it was located.
* The Dillon Mine has actually two shafts seen in this view, again it is the DPL view that is really of any use to such image research, a slight distance left of the shaft-house of the Strong mine on the right-hand side, there is a small Head-frame and small hoist house seen on the hillside with a dump – that is located on the Dillon claim. Further up the hill, more hidden away due to distance and such, is the more commonly associated boxy type of Shaft-house of the Dillon seen where it lays just below the mainline of the M.T. climbing the hills towards the Portland mine area outside the view at right. Seen best on the DPL view at a 100% look, or try the 200% and go near right-hand corner, the only shaft-house in this area with lettering on the side of the structure.
* Again, the DPL is of help to locate the Ore-house of the Mary Cashen Mine, as it is poking up among the roofs of Victor structures, about halfway between the Strong and the Gold Coin mines.
* Also, on the DPL Image the Fortuna Mine is seen quite well in the 100% view, just where the word 'Skolas' is written about 2/5 up from bottom and about 1/3 in from right-hand side. Showing a small Head-Frame west of the Hoist & Power House, with what might have been the loo west of the head-frame or possible a shed for dynamite?

Yet another interesting view from Battle Mountain towards the Gold Coin mine in Victor, as it is getting rebuilt after the 1899 fire that destroyed the old mine and lot of the town itself. Just too bad that all edition of this view that I've seen is from printed sources, from the bad quality printed postcard this view is from, to an even worse in a Souvenir folding book published to promote the Midland Terminal.
While it is really hard to tell, it appears possible that in this view not even the Ore-house has been rebuilt yet, but it is too darn hard to tell for sure. I see the smokestack, the head frame can be picked out as exposed, and it looks like there is a wooden frame around the area where brick walls are known to have been. It may also be in the time frame around 1920/1921 when they tore down the Gold Coin, I really can't tell from this single image!
In the foreground, right, is the distinctive Ore-house of the Mary Cashen seen, and outside the view to the right would the head frame for that mine be. 
Victor Public Sampler is the long structure just left of the Mary Cashen, with its cupola on the roof and with part of it outside the view at right.
The mine seen with its small head frame and hoist house at lower left is for the moment a mystery to me at the time of this writing [19.02.2017].

This is not the best views of the Gold Coin mine, due to the print type of process behind this postcard. It did not scan well and details are lost to the dots making up the image. But, it does show yet another image that at least at one time did exist out there as a negative, with three mines visible. Also, we see some train activity on the F. & C.C. tracks at the lower left part of the view.
In the prominent place about center of view we of course see the massive brick structures of the Gold Coin mine!
In foreground, lower part right-hand side of the view, we see part of the cribbing of the Mary Cashen mine, and its dump area inside the crib-wall.
In lower right-hand corner one also see a piece of the Victor Public Sampler structure, rest is outside the view in this card.
A little less than 1/3 left from the right-hand side, about 1/3 down from the top, behind the roof part of the engine room part of the Gold Coin, the head frame of the Golconda mine is poking up among the roof tops of the houses in the background.

This view of Victor from Battle Mountain is a nice one when looking at the online sources of the non-postcard view. It holds so many goodies it is hard to describe them all.
The Gold Coin mine is seen in quite a nice look, just to the left of the center of the view.
Further up front is also seen the Ore-house of the Mary Cashen mine, with a near square head frame and part of the cribbing to hold the waste rock in place as they had not the same luxury as Gold Coin to transport waste away through a long tunnel.
At left of the orehouse is the structures of the Victor Public Sampler, located just below the M.T. spurs and sort of sandwiched in between that and the switchback spur down to the orehouse of the Strong Mine further to the left, outside this view. Piece of the tail-end of that spur is seen along the cribbing and head frame of the Mary Cashen when looking near right hand side where the Victor depot of the M.T. is seen.
Way of in the background, right of the Gold Coin but sort of just over the south part (left) part of the Gold Coin Club structure, the Golconda structures can be seen on the Internet sources when fully zoomed into the view. That mine is hard to find good images of.

Card has a bad curve to it making it a little bit hard to scan as it will not lay flat, also it has a somewhat faded look, but I have enhanced it a little and use that copy here. No info given about the occasion for this people gathering. Some handwriting on the backside but that is done years later as it gave wrong info about what is in this scene in terms of mines seen. Near impossible to scan readable as I need to twist the card against the light to be able to read it by eye on card itself, and some is so faded I can't make it out against the dark card backing.
* Scene is at the F. & C.C. Depot Grounds in Victor, roof of the Depot is seen on left-hand side, and that gives this to be the newer depot, the one from after the 1899 City fire. To the right-hand side of the depot/image part is seen a prospect type of operation, as there is seen one head frame and one structure hiding behind the Denver & Rio Grande Passenger Cars making up the passenger train part of this view, as far as I can tell they are part of the Mary Cashen Mine operation, before they made the huge dump behind a large crib-wall seen in many Victor views. At first I thought this was an early view due to the headframes seen, but have realized it is possible into 1900 or maybe a year or two later into the century.
* The Mine seen with its Head Frame towards the photographer, on the dump near middle top, is one that puzzles me as I can't fully make out if it is on the W.C. Dillon or on the Strong claims. It seems to be a small operation, with a hoist house behind it, seen in many views of this area, and I have started to think it is a smaller shaft of the Dillon mine, but might very well be a totally different mine at all.
* Near upper right-hand corner is the trestle out from the Coalbins House of the Independence No. 1 Shaft structures seen, with the main structures of the mine behind the trestle and dump seen.

Yet another view of the great Gold Coin Mine from further north and east on Battle Mountain. I can barely make out some of the poles belonging to the Low Line entering the city from southwest, along 7th street - about middle of view top/down on the left-hand side. Near the right-hand side, I can see the cut and part of the roadbed for the F. & C.C. behind the southern (left) part of the roof of the Gold Coin Club structure.
   In lower left of the image part you see the top part of the head frame for the Mary Cashen mine, just where the text say Gold Coin Mine. What I find a little strange is the fact the wheel for the rope to the shaft seems so small when compared to the head frame itself.

This interesting view from Battle Mountain towards the Gold Coin mine in Victor, as it is getting rebuilt after the 1899 fire that destroyed the old mine and lot of the town itself, helps give the impression of what was first rebuilt and what was postponed. The Ore-house was clearly important as that is already up in this view, same is the large head frame, while the shaft house only have the first level of walls put up.
In the foreground is the distinctive Ore-house of the Mary Cashen seen, with its head frame just to the right of the orehouse. 
Victor Public Sampler is the long structure in-front of the Mary Cashen, and the railroad in the foreground is the M.T with its depot towards the right-hand side of this view.

This view of the town of Victor is taken from Squaw Mountain looking east, southeast. It is an interesting view due to many reasons, please check out the 100% view on the DPL site if your curious, as that is a good one to see.
About middle up on the far left you see the massive Shaft House of the Strong Mine and just of center to the right you have the massive Gold Coin Mine complex. In the lower left corner, there is an interesting and fun thing to observe, one actually get to see the entrance to a Trolley tunnel under a dump along the original Trolley roadbed into Victor, as marked on one of the earlier Sanborn maps, but not showing any rails on the Sanborn map, I am uncertain if there are any on this photo.

I have assumed as this stereoview is copyrighted by a person that this is also the photographer, and that the year is the year the photo was taken, but I might be dead wrong here. Either way, this is sadly not the best quality view I've seen, the paper the photo's making up this stereoview is processed on, did not do justice to the view I feel, making it un-sharp and hard to see details on.
In the foreground left bottom is either way the reason I had to get this view in the first place, the shaft house of the Dillon mine! With its odd shaped roof part where it is very steep on the right-hand side and way less steep on the other side, it makes an interesting building to model (one day).
The Mary Cashen ore-house is seen near the left-hand side, about middle top/bottom.
The Gold Coin Mine is a little above the center of the view, in this view it has a sort of steep pyramidic shape almost, but sadly very hard to see any details and not really any good presentation of it.
The dump of the Dead Pine can be seen about middle top/bottom on the right-hand side, more on the left view then the right view, but no structures are seen, hence it really doesn't fit to be linked to that mine.

Either way, this is sadly not the best quality view I've seen, the paper the photo's making up this stereoview is processed on, did not do justice to the view I feel, making it un-sharp and hard to see details on.
graphic for visual presentation of textIn the foreground left bottom is either way the reason I had to get this view in the first place, the shaft house of the Dillon mine! With its odd shaped roof part where it is very steep on the right-hand side and way less steep on the other side, it makes an interesting building to model (one day).
graphic for visual presentation of textThe Mary Cashen ore-house is seen near the left-hand side, about middle top/bottom.
graphic for visual presentation of textThe Gold Coin Mine is a little above the center of the view, in this view it has a sort of steep pyramidic shape almost, but sadly very hard to see any details and not really any good presentation of it.
graphic for visual presentation of textThe dump of the Dead Pine can be seen about middle top/bottom on the right-hand side, more on the left view then the right view, but no structures are seen, hence it really doesn't fit to be linked to that mine.

Sadly, this image is pretty messed up by that large whitish block showing up on the glass plate negative. Add the fact it is really not that sharp either, and blurs a little on the edges, and it folds itself nicely into most other images in my collection, close but not the best of views, like most of the images I have!
* Around center of the view is the familiar look of the Gold Coin structures, looking at the north and east walls.
* Near lower left is the F. & C.C. depot, the western part of it obscured by the crib-wall of the Mary Cashen mine. The Ore-house is partly hidden under the damaged part, same with the head frame, and any other possible good things.
* The M.T. depot is seen near the lower right corner.
* Near the right-hand side, about 2/5 down from the top, is the head frame and hoist house of the Golconda mine, sadly I was not able to get a sharp scan so there is no reason to try get a closer look as it really is not much to look at, not sharp at all in a higher resolution scan.

Sadly, this is a really bad quality glass plate negative, lots of damages to it, no idea if it would be possible to clean up or not, looks like there are some sort of fixed dust to it, maybe the right type of cleaning would do wonders? But I have not the correct training or idea how to proceed so I just scanned it and put it aside, feeling sorry it was so bad after being stored away a hundred and so years. Sad really, as this would otherwise have been an excellent view towards the Gold Coin Mine from the east, before the fire that burned it and much of Victor down.
   The head frame in foreground right, I am not sure about, it might be an early prospect shaft of the Mary Cashen, or possible some other mine in this area, so for the time being [19.02.2017] I just assume it to be part of the Mary Cashen.
   The railroad seen is the Florence & Cripple Creek with its depot like it was before that to burned in 1899.

Sadly, this image has seen way better days, and what is presented here is the best I could get out of the very faded view of Victor, photographed sometime before the 1899 fire that wrecked the town. As there is a Trolley car about middle of view from side to side and about 1/3 up from bottom, this view is most likely from 1898 or no later than 1899, as while the trolley line had its grade done to Victor, inclusive rails & catenary by December 1, 1897, regular service was not started before January 3, 1898.
The railroad in the foreground is the M.T. mainline with a string of boxcars set out on a siding, going towards the Monument mine, but not sure if it ever was connected to the mine.
* The head frame seen on left-hand side, near bottom, is most likely the Dillon mine.
* A little left of the trolley, and about the top of the headframe of the Dillon mine, is the Mary Cashen mine operation, see a quite a big hoist house with a large smokestack on the back of it, but sadly the quality is so bad it is hard to see any details.

Yet another view of the great Gold Coin Mine from further north and east on Battle Mountain. Sadly, once again the paper quality is of the type that what is dark is dark, and there is some shininess to parts, making it hard to get the image tweaked into giving away more details.
In the foreground is part of the M.T. spur to the Victor Sampler seen, with C.M. Boxcar No. 5047 standing on a dual gauge track as this spur was connected with the F. & C.C, seen on the lower level further into the image.
* The Victor Public Sampler is seen partly on the right-hand side, the foreground structures except the clearly a house with a porch in lower right corner.
* Behind the sampler is the crib-wall and ore-house of the Mary Cashen seen, but not a really useful view of this mine.
* The Gold Coin mine is about in the center of the view, in full operation as seen by the smoke from the large chimney.
* Part of the Golconda head frame and hoist house is seen in the far background at right of the upper part of the Gold Coin shaft house, behind the engine house part of the Gold Coin.
