This page has a total of 6 images, as of 16.06.2019 (16:22:56).
Most Recent added/changed image is on 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.

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.

This is a photoprint version of a glass negative that I also have, it is a shot of Victor from the area on Battle Mountain closing in on Squaw Mountain.  There is an unknown mine to me at the time of this writing [18.02.2017] in the foreground center bottom, then the Midland Terminal main track comes on a filling crossing over from the Battle Mtn. to the Squaw Mtn. hill side.
Further downhill, about 1/3 in from left-hand side, and about same from bottom, one see a crib-wall in a curve and this is where the original High Line entered Victor town, track is seen there as well. To go to this location, the trolley had to use a tunnel to cross the ground of the Dead Pine mine with its dump and a big crib wall - I have seen on a Sanborn map an indication of a tunnel there too, and for me, this picture helps now to show how it looked in that area.
One another thing I like with this photo is the fact that I can see Gold Coin under construction, I can see the Head Frame, the top of the brick structures is open, and only thing that is covered is the ore house.
Way down, in topology below the Gold Coin but in this image, about an inch above the Gold Coin, to the right of the smokestack, is the Shaft-house of the St. Patrick Mine visible as well.

This view I have a very hard time understanding how can be seen from the Short Line being that the railroad had no grades in this area... I know that around 1903 there was a connection between the Short Line grade near Goldfield over to the M.T. grade allowing trains to cross over to the M.T, and use it's Victor depot and roadbed into Cripple Creek, but this view is taken up near the Ajax Mine and only Short Line track up there was a branch line ending at the Ajax Mine...
   The roadbed seen below the cribbing is the mainline of the M.T. bypassing Victor higher up on Battle Mountain, using a switchback downhill further west to reach its station partly visible among the dumps at about middle left.
   It is a somewhat common view of Victor though, showing the Gold Coin Mine rebuilt in brick after the 1899 fire, and further downhill the shaft house of the St. Patrick Mine can be seen, suggesting this image has been photographed sometime between 1900 to 1907.
