This page has a total of 7 images, as of 17.12.2021 (17:21:08).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This sadly bad quality view of the exterior of the Hull City Mine is still though the only one I know about by today (Oct. 13, 2021) showing this scene at this timeframe it is from. In the background is the south side of Bull Cliff or east Bull Hill, while in the foreground is the massive structures of the Hull City mine, located at upper end of the townsite of Independence.
   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.

This sadly not so good quality view of the interior at the Shaft of the Hull City Mine is still though an important catching of a scene at the timeframe it is from. A large group of Miners are posing to get captured as there is a change of Shifts at the Hull City mine. We can see there are two cages behind them, saying this is a huge operation at this time.

This sadly not so good quality view of the interior in the Ore House of the Hull City Mine is still though an important catching of a scene at the timeframe it is from. A group of workers are posing to get captured on this image, giving some sort of feeling of their work and how this operation worked at this time. We see rails on the floor, ore-cars, men with shovels.

This quite nice scene of the exterior of the Hull City Mine is lovely as it is an early view showing what must been recently made huge surface structures of this mine operations. In the foreground are a small row od log cabins, four in view. Behind those are the Hull City mine and in background is the south side of Bull Cliff or east Bull Hill as I also seen it named as. To the lower right the tracks of the railroads serving this mine are seen, both the Golden Circle and the Midland Terminal served the ore-bins. Making one of those tracks dual gauged.

This sadly not so good quality view of the interior in the Engine House of the Hull City Mine is still though an important catching of a scene at the timeframe it is from. Three men are posing to get captured on this image, giving some sort of feeling of their work and how this operation worked at this time. In background left the large hoist, double drum due to two cages, and in foreground some sort of pump maybe.

This is a view at a smaller Mine operation at the location of the former larger Hull City Mine, the cribbing seen further uphill in the background was part of the large Findley Dump. What happened to the much larger and well-known Hull City Mine I have no knowledge about, maybe it burned? Maybe it got tore down?
   * About 2/7 down from top and nearly 1/7 in from left-hand side, against the sky, is the top of the Head-frame at the Specimen Mine seen with its wheel about center of the top frame from right to left in this view – very hard to make out on the postcard scan, easier to see on my 1200dpi scan.
   * About 1/7 down from top and about 1/7 in from right-hand side is another Head-Frame seen, and I keep wondering if this might not be the eastern Lucky Guess shaft? Very hard to tell, the old shaft house is long gone.
   * The old Golden Circle Mainline is seen about 2/5 down from top, entering the view at left-side, climbing a little, hide behind a dump at the crib-wall, then being visible a little again before exiting behind a new dump at the right-hand side. Below the crib-wall, almost at middle down/top is the old grade of the High Line, and the Short Line Portland branch – long gone in this view as I see no line side poles, so this help dating the view to be after the demise of the Trolley Service in late 1919.
   * Sanborn Fire Insurance Map for Victor dated August 1919 (Sheet 10; Independence) shows the more common old larger structure at this location, so I do think this view is way later but have nothing to compare it with.

The source image had below it four names mention, and as I see four men on the right-hand side it is easy to think those four is the same persons, but I am not certain. The names given is: Eben Smith, President; W.S. Montgomery, Vice-President; R.H. Reid, Secretary & Treasurer; W.P. Dunham, General Manager.
Mine is self is known as Hull City, quite prominent and impressive located in the town of Independence on Bull Hill. Altman is on top of hill in background, left of the shaft-house. This mine was connected to the Golden Circle railroad.
