This view of Victor is looking north from Straub Mountain area. Photographed in 1911 by the Hileman as the view is credited to. Being this is from a printed card in a small more modern postcard folder it is not the greatest quality, but one gets an idea of the town and the many mines in and around it. In addition, in this view they are marked out, even if there is at least one error in that marking.
* In upper left quadrangle is the Portland No. 1 & No. 2 marked out, but the location of the No. 2 shaft of the Portland is NOT where this image gives it! Portland No. 2 shaft is in this view above the No. 1 shaft, seen a little left of the center of this view sideways. No. 2 Shaft of Portland is seen against the sky with No. 1 just below it, with the huge dumps where No.1 is written. The Granite, original shaft, is located where this card has written the No.2 text.
* Just behind and left of the huge smokestack of the Gold Coin shaft, marked in this view as Granite, is the main shaft of the Dead Pine. The dump is much easier seen then the mine itself.

This view of Victor is looking north from Straub Mountain area. Photographed in 1909 by the H. & H. Studio in Cripple Creek, it was taken by either Hileman or Hill, impossible to tell for sure as the view is credited to them both. Being this is from a printed card in a small more modern postcard folder it is not the greatest quality, but one gets an idea of the town and the many mines in and around it.
* Gold Coin, here marked as Granite Mine on the south facing ore-house, is seen about middle top/down and about 1/5 in from left-hand side.
* Just behind the huge smokestack of the Gold Coin is the main shaft of the Dead Pine, named Oliver Shaft for some reason. The dump is much easier seen then the mine itself.
* Straight up from the Gold Coin smokestack, in the distance; against the sky; sticking up from the hill, is the shaft-house of the American Eagle.
* The Ajax Mine is about 1/4 down from top left, about 1/6 on from left-hand side.
* Further to the right of the Ajax would been upper shaft of the Dead Pine, the Granite (original shaft/mine) – seen about 1/3 in from left-hand side – and the Burns (main) shaft of the Portland mines, with the Portland No. 2 seen just off to the right for the center of the upper quarter in this view.
* Towards the right-hand side is seen the Strong Mine, about half top/down and 2/3 in from the left-hand side.
* The Independence Mine is just right of the Strong mine, seen with its huge dumps and structures.
* The Vindicator Mine, shaft 1, is seen above the Independence mine, about 1/3 down from top.

This view of Victor from Battle Mountain up near the Ajax mine is possible from the 1930's, I am not sure, as there are no dates to go from. The postcard has a EKC stamp box on the backside, and Google gives info that this is from the 1939-1950 timespan, so late 1930's might be a safe bet. There are still rails seen, with railroad cars, so I would guess the M.T. is still running, making this also fit the late 1930's and very early 1940's timeframe.
In foreground towards lower left is the head frame and hoist house of the Oliver Shaft of the Dead Pine mine seen, with its big dump stretching out towards the town and the rails of the M.T., which depot can be seen left of the head frame.
An exposed more modern version of the Gold Coin head frame can be seen about middle top/down and about 1/3 in from the right-hand side of the card, with the ruins of the brick walls seen around it, check out the image in the Gold Coin base image view, as number 7.
In a sort of continued line from the head frame of the Dead Pine through the Gold Coin, one can see the dump area of the St. Patrick mine about 2/7 in from right-hand side and about 2/5 from top. Best seen as a cropped version of a higher resolution scan of this card, check out view 7 in the St. Patrick Base page image view.

The right-hand side part of this image is so blurred it is impossible to get anything useful out of it. Overall it is not a very sharp photo when scanned in high resolution, but it is among the better ones.
   The date of this is after the sale of the Gold Coin Mine to the Granite company, as the ore house of the Gold Coin has Granite written on it, making this after 1905 if memory serve me right.
   One fun thing is that you can actually see a glimpse of the American Eagle Mine, seen about 2/9 in from left-hand side and about 1/6 down from top of image, against the sky. In addition, lots of mines are seen and it is easy to see why Victor is dubbed City of Mines!

This photo is possible from 1904 as it appears in a book from that timeframe with a Copyright note of 1904 by Hook, the photographer. The town of Victor is seen from Battle Mountain, not exactly sure where, but at left-hand side is the Fourth Street seen.
The Gold Coin Mine and Gold Coin Club is seen about 1/5 in from the left, and the mine structure partly hidden by the hill, with its double smokestack and head frame about 1/5 in from the right and 1/3 up from bottom is the north-east side of the Oliver shaft, or the main Dead Pine shaft, as confirmed by looking at the 1908 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map.

I like this view as it is shot down 7th Street where the Low Line used to enter the town of Victor, and hence a view I don't see that often, just sad the trolley is gone. It also shows much of the western part of Victor towards the right of the street, and in the background, the mines of Battle Mountain;
* The Ajax Mine operation is seen about 1/4 in from left-hand side and 1/4 down from the top.
* Further to the right of Ajax is seen Portland No. 2 against the sky, about middle sideways, with the top of the exposed head-frame of Portland No. 1 just below it to the right.
* Almost at the edge of the right-hand side, a little bit more than 1/3 from top is the exposed Head-Frame of the Stratton's Independence Mine, or just Independence Mine, and just below it, over the roof of the bit of Victor Hotel seen, is a head-frame I think of as the Strong mine.
* The Dead Pine Oliver Shaft is seen about 2/5 in from left-hand side and about 2/5 down from top, lots of dumps around it.
* Mohican/Mohegan Mine operation is seen about 1/5 in from left-hand side and about 1/3 down from top, there is some simple structures and a chute down to an ore-bin along the M.T. mainline going behind Victor houses in its route along the hillsides. Looks like there is some form of a rock breaker up there, possible they are working the dumps more than a hole in the ground, but location is about where the Mohican was, hence me locating it there.
* The Gold Coin ruins and Operation is seen with its smaller head frame, small wood ore-house, a little more than 2/5 from top and a little more than 1/4 in from right hand side. Just right of the head-frame is seen a tower-like structure, I think that was the end terminal for an aerial tram down from the Dillon shaft up near the M.T. mainline inside the massive dumps seen below the Portland mines and to the right of the Dead Pine mine.
