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 5 images, as of 05.05.2019 (20:29:41).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Sadly, this photograph is not of a good quality, it is partly out of focus, bottom left has what appears to be shaking movements to it, and the paper appears like it is having small dots/bumps when I look at the high-resolution scan of 1200dpi. Is this a copy of another photo or is it a real made original photo, I can't tell. I have very little luck in enhancing the view, in itself it gives me the feel this is a copy from a source unknown, but I shall not say this is a copy, just that it feels like it is!
   The View itself is from Victor Town, east end - looking east – of the Ball Park area, with lot of spectators looking at what is written to be a Hand Drilling Contest for a Prize, where a man is swinging his hammer/sledge and three men are sitting down, where 1 might be holding something and the other two might be judging, I do not know.
   In background left top is the Head-Frame of the Jefferson Mine seen, sadly not very sharp or useful. Further to the right is the cut made for Victor Avenue seen with a parked automobile it seems, and then the Victor High School is seen. Also, a large sign with the writing of 'Victor Iron Works' are seen, located on top of roof of a structure this side of the High School Structure.

To me this was somewhat of an important view as at on the top, towards the right part, there is seen partly a mine named Jefferson Mine, and while not the best view it still provides a view towards a mine not often seen in images from the District.
   The focus of this view for the photographer Lehr was however the man with the hammer nailing down some stick another man kneeling is holding, I suspect, being this was a Hand-Drilling Contest scene. In the background a wood planked fenced is seen with lot of text on it, various advertisement messages, with houses up the hill east of that fence, as this is a view facing east. Victor Avenue can be seen at the cut north of the Victor Highschool.

Sadly, this is a printed view, but I feel it is an important view as it fails to show the brick Shaft House of the Gold Coin Mine, only the covered walkway from shaft to the ore house is standing there. The head frame though feels wrong for the one that was put up after the fire, inside the shaft house, which made me first think this is was a later image, after they tore down the shaft house of the Gold Coin around end of 1920.
But then a friend, La Jean Greeson, pointed out to me that the Catholic Church, across from the Washington School – a church still standing in Victor – is not yet built in this view, and that dates this to be before they started building the church in 1902. Thanks La Jean! The before mention Washington School can be seen about 1/3 in from the right-hand side, and about half bottom/top, and the church shall be built left of this school structure, at the corner of 2nd Street and Portland Avenue.
The use of this smaller head frame and wood structures for the Gold Coin tells how important it was to get the mine up and running again, but they certainly have changed things allot in the ground where Gold Coin was located. As I have a dated photo from July 1901 with a completed Gold Coin in brick, this image here must be from around 1900, not sure exact but the Bank Block structure, later to be Victor Hotel, was completed by end of December 1899 – this structure can be seen as the large 4 story corner building behind the smokestack of the Gold Coin, about 1/3 up from bottom and same in from the right-hand side.
Up near the F. & C.C. railroad yard, depot, near lower left corner, the Elks Lodge structure at corner of 3rd street and Diamond Avenue, seems to either being rebuilt or built, as it is clearly in this view a more ruin looking structure then the nice-looking structure it is.

As the postcard is dated July 13, 1908 on the backside this photograph must be older than that date... Sadly the image itself is rather dark and while it is a photo type of card, it has lots of reflections to it and is hard to clean up. The view itself is yet another view of the town of Victor from up on Squaw Mountain, this time the Gold Coin mine is not as centered as it often was.
Off to the right hand-hand side, a little further up then 1/3 from the bottom, is the largest edition of the Shaft House of the St. Patrick mine that I have seen, with a growing dump north of it, which will say to the left.

Yet another Victor view, taken from Squaw Mountain somewhere. Near center of view is the large Gold Coin mine, helping date this image to after the mine was rebuilt in bricks. It reads "Victor" on the lower left corner. Measures 6.50 x 4.50, including backing paper which it is adhered to. Sadly, the paper it is made on has some issues when it comes to clarity and what is dark in this view is dark forever here as it is not possible to lighten the parts. Quite some shininess is also seen, especially in lower end of the image on the right-hand side.
* About 1/3 up from lower left-hand corner, part of the dump and cribbing of the Mary Cashen is seen.
* The Gold Coin is also about 1/3 up from bottom center, and if one moves further up on the image, up along an invisible line from the smokestack, a couple of smaller mines are seen. The one straight up from smokestack is the Maggie mine of the "Great Central-M&M-Co.", as I seen it named in a photo close-up. It is a longer shaft house with a higher part in one end and a dump in front of it.
* I've yet to fully identify the shorter, more whitish, shaft house seen just left of the former mention invisible line, and a little closer down the photo from the Maggie mine.
* Moving to the right-hand side of the view, near the edge of the view, almost at center top/down, the shaft-house of the St. Patrick mine can be seen, here seen as a typical shaft house structure with the high part and sloped roof and all.
* Jefferson Mine is seen below and across the street from the Victor High School, seen about middle top/down and near left-hand side.
