This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer
type of text in order to
push the Entity info
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 12 images, as of 29.01.2023 (15:15:24).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Sadly not a quality great view, but still a great view as it is a rare view from the trackside of the F. & C. C. mainline at the Golconda Mine Shaft no.1 operation on Squaw Mountain! The source is a group photo so the image sort of lacks details here and there, and I cheated a little on the colored version where I copied the tracks to fill out missing info at the lower right and left.
   Victor town is located outside the view at left, making the direction of the view in a southeast looking direction, and it appears like they have dug a trench just below the dump and the track, as there is a darker line there that might be a drainage drench for some reason but is more likely a left over from the early exploration of this ground.
   This shaft was located at the southern end of the claim, and sometime after 1896 it was abandoned, and the main working shaft moved further up the hill for some unknow reason. The structure and the headframe here are of somewhat large size so the hope and idea of this mine was certainly at this time around 1895-1896 looking prosperous! Being this was so visible from the train it is among those I need to try make a 3D model of some day!
   I did procure the colored version of this image as I think it is nicer. Source is gray-toned, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes for the moment.

Sadly not a quality great view, but still a great view as it is a rare view at the Golconda Mine Shaft no.1 operation on Squaw Mountain! This view also has marked out a Shaft no. 2 and no. 3 and I think one of those might also be the Discovery Shaft on the Golconda lode claim. Sometime after 1896 the main working shaft moved away from the structure in this view here, to further up the hill, don't know why.
   Victor town is located outside the view at right, the view shows all three railroad spurs that was on Squaw Mountain, with the mainline of the F. & C. C. making up the lower one just beyond the ridgeline of the roof for the Golconda structure in left foreground.  About 2/3 up from bottom is the Victor branch from the M. T. mainline seen a little bit further up the hill, where a string of boxcars marks a siding along the east slope of Squaw Mtn near upper right.

While the views in the prospectus that is the source was not the best in terms of quality, it still is one of the best views I have of one of the many shafts that graced the Golconda lode in its lifetime! Based on research it looks like this image can be from around late September 1899 till early October same year, as by end av third week of September 1899 the company leasing the Golconda had its new machinery and shaft house operational, and as people are posing on these views it sort of make sense to me that they can be from same timeframe, especially as the source prospect talks about 1899 as not ended yet.
   I don't understand why the source title on this image say this is the rear view of the hoisting engine, as the photographer is clearly standing in front of the hoist, with the wire going out of the structure from the hoist drum to the headframe barely seen leaving the drum extending out of the top of this view near sideway middle, so I corrected my use of the title.
   Other stuff seen in this view is the Forge Station for sharpening drills in left background corner, a tank of some source with unknown content at right background where the man is posing at the doorway out, and at left foreground an angled wall shielding the Storeroom the title mention was in this structure.

   The photographer stood with Squaw Mountain in the back, the town of Victor is outside the view at left, and I wonder if the trestle at lower left might be across the mainline of the F. & C. C. railroad as this shaft was located north of it. After all, there is a substantial dip in the ground here.

This must be along 7th Street in Victor, as there is a hanger for a trolley wire clipped off by the damaged part of this postcard. Sadly, it got damaged either in the photographing or in the making process, but still quite nice to have... Not the sharpest view but still a link back to days long gone.
   In background left, up on Squaw Mountain a short Midland Terminal train is out with 3 ore gondola type of cars, and just in front of that train there is a smaller Head-Frame poking up, which I believe is part of the Golconda Mine, as that is the only mine I know about in that area.

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.

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.

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.

Description:
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!
graphic for visual presentation of text* Around center of the view is the familiar look of the Gold Coin structures, looking at the north and east walls.
graphic for visual presentation of text* 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.
graphic for visual presentation of text* The M.T. depot is seen near the lower right corner.
graphic for visual presentation of text* 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.

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.
