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 2 images, as of 16.07.2019 (10:35:47).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Date is a guestimate, I have a near identical card, almost same angle, and the dumps looks to be the same size. In fact, all looks so alike that at first, I thought they were the same card – except when I put them side by side I suddenly noticed there was one difference in the foreground bottom where the other card had a structure where this card lacks that structure! But, as all rest looks so alike I think those two are photographed not that far apart in time. My other card has some text written with something about Copyright Applied for in bottom right, name Hileman and what appears to be an 8 in front of that, but sadly that card is partly messed up in that area so can't read it fully. Still, it makes me believe this is same year…
   The focus of the image is the large shaft House of the John A. Logan Mine, also known as the Logan Shaft of the Stratton Cripple Creek Mining & Development Company. I've often wondered why there was not a spur to the Ore House as the High Line/Short Line branch line to the Blue Bird Mine was just below it, but I never ever seen evidence for such a spur.
   To show how close the Ore-House is to the track, the Blue Bird Branch-line is partly seen climbing the hill in lower right, from about 1/3 in from right-hand side and till the right-hand side and is passing behind the small mine operation with the big trestle work in lower left. The trestle itself crosses the mainline of the High Line track, and they dumped their waste down the hill from the west (opposite) side of the Trolley and Steam train used track, outside this postcard view.

Date is a guestimate, there is written something about Copyright Applied for in bottom right, name Hileman and what appears to be an 8 in front of that, sadly card is partly messed up in that area so can't read it fully.
   The focus is the large shaft House of the John A. Logan Mine, here known as the Logan Shaft of the Stratton Cripple Creek Mining & Development Company, and I often wondered why there was not a spur to the Ore House as the High Line/Short Line branch line to the Blue Bird Mine was just below it.
   A tiny piece of the Blue Bird Branch is seen in lower right-hand corner, before it hides behind the dump materials from the small mine operation with the big trestle work in foreground left. The whole branch has a steep climb up the hill behind the foreground mine operation. The trestle itself crosses the mainline of the High Line track, the two legs at left corner is across the tracks and they dumped their waste down the hill from the west (opposite) side of the Trolley and Steam train used track.
