Title on Image:
El Paso Mine, Cripple Creek District
I never seen this view as a photograph, only as a printed image used for postcards and postcard folders, various crops from the source negative and various titles used. Also, various works been done to the print plates used to create the cards.
At time of writing thins I know off 11 versions/editions from the source, where 3 is from postcard folders and rest is postcards, and ten of those has the El Paso Mine used in the title, which here on this card can be seen about sideways center and about 1/3 down from the top, with a growing dump down the slope of Beacon Hill.
At left side, about 2/5 down from top, most of the surface Structures of the C.K. & N. Mine can be seen, while near bottom left the Henry Adney and Old Gold Mines can be seen. I often mix them together, but I think the Hendry Adney is the one to the left.
I am not certain of the name of the mine seen in lower right, but I think it is the Lonaconing Mine. Neither have I names for the several other smaller mine operations seen spread around this scene, but I hope one day to learn all this and be able to understand the relations and names and all.
Between the Henry Adney and the Old Gold mines there seems to be visible the tracks of the short-lived F. & C.C. switchback branch down Beacon Hill, built in 1904, which dates this view to be from between 1904 and 1906.
