This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer

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 23.06.2022 (18:36:04).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This is an enhanced view as source had flaws, a quite a bit faded, spots, discoloration, but I worked over it as best as I could. Town of Altman is seen from southwest, and the Burns Mine & head frame is visible at far left, at the edge of the image. The Shaft House of the Pinto Mine is also clearly seen where it is poking up behind the houses of Altman about 1/3 from the left. At right-hand side, about middle top/down is what I think is mining operation on the Wilson claim of the Free Coinage G.M. Co.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was 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.

I like this Harlan Photo, even if it has many flaws. I assume this is from before the 1904 Fire that took out the town of Altman, but I really do not know. I do know that this view is taken from northwest of Altman, looking towards Bull Cliff seen as the top sticking up over the houses about center of the view sideways and about 1/3 down from top.
   * At about center top/down at left-hand side is the Orehouse of the Acacia Co. Burns Mine, with a Headframe and structures around that shaft on the right-hand side, and town of Altman houses into the center so to speak.
   * The Pinto Mine Shaft House is seen about 1/3 down from top and about 1/5 in from left-hand side, this is the shaft-house version/look I've seen most often in images/views.
   * The photographer stands on the dumping ground of the northern Pharmacist shaft house, from all I can gather of sources when I write this text November 29, 2021. Source had flaws, made on not good paper, somewhat faded, spots, discoloration, not sharp, but I worked over it as best as I could.

   Image is quite faded, but I was able to enhance it quite OK, and I can make out anything in it I think. The image has two markings on it, left most X marks what is noted on the side of the photo the "New Store" while the right most X marks the "Old Store" of someone in Altman by the time this photo was taken. Also Pikes Peak is marked, and on the backside of the photo it says ''From A.J. Harlan, Photo' Co., Victor, - Colo.''
   * Old Pharmacist Mine is seen at far left with a triangular peaked Cupola and a longish narrow structure as a Shaft House, said to be an Incline type of shaft. Quite an extensive dump spread out east of the structure. The Shed poking out towards the photographer is per Sanborn Fire Insurance map of 1900 (Sheet 14, Victor set) for the Blacksmith. The dump in foreground obscuring the west end of the shaft house is part of the Zenobia dump.
   * Beyond the Pharmacist, into the image just at right, is the Burns Mine with part of a head frame poking up from the roof. What is in the image is not fully fitting the 1900 Sanborn map, but that mine was not included in the 1896 maps and the 1908 edition shows a different look altogether.
   * A rectangular shaped structure and marked with a cross is seen further right, a church in Altman, also seen on the 1908 Sanborn map, marked as R.C. Church, not used by then.
   * The structure that was later to hold the Geo. McMillan Grocery Shop marked out in other photo's with an extension not seen in this photo is located at southwest end of the main-street of Altman, or far-right in this cropped view.
   I did procure the colored version of this image, if that is what you see. Source was 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.

Quite a nice very early view of east side of Bull Hill with some of its mines and the early start of the town of Altman, here called 'Pharmacist Town,' while Bull Hill is called Bull Mountain. Taken April 20, 1893 it feels like a treasure to have, flaws and all!
   Near left-hand side the early Shaft house of the Hidden Treasure Mine is seen, while further downhill, the Zenobia, Pharmacist and Burns Shaft houses are marked out, thankfully. There are more mines, but they are not marked out. 
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment. Source had flaws, somewhat faded, ridges on the photo itself, and it was impossible to bring forward the Pikes Peak Range, but in the end, I worked over it as best as I could.

   This sadly badly printed type of postcard is interesting due to several factors, for instance it is based on a great shot of Altman Town and street layout, and the mines around it.
   * Shaft house of the Pharmacist Mine, also known as the Marie Mining Co., is seen near lower left corner.
   * Just passed the upper portion of the Shaft House of the Pharmacist is the location of the Burns Mine, the Shaft House can be picked out on my 600dpi scan and is located just below the center top/down of the image part, and just left of the sideway center.
   * The Pinto Mine is harder to pick out due to the printed quality of this card, but it is located about 1/3 in from left-hand side of the image part, and just above the top/down centerline.
