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 01.08.2018 (11:44:45).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
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.

Direction of this view is east, northeast, on Bull Hill, just west of the surface structures of the Specimen Mine operation, with an open Head-Frame and Hoist-house and shed linked to it, and a small Ore-house to the right down the hillside a small bit.
   In the distance, up from the orehouse, the surface structures of the Vindicator No. 1 Mine are seen with a large Head-frame and Ore-house down into massive dumps, impossible to tell if it still is linked to a railroad or not in this view. Further on in the distance to the left, a big string of railroad cars say that the Midland Terminal is still in operation, but there is no trace of the High Line Electric Division, as where that should be I only see a road surface – cutting almost the headframe of the Specimen Mine in two so to speak.
   Image is not sharp enough to tell if there are any rails left on the old Golden Circle tracks seen climbing Bull Hill, or is it Bull Cliff, about 1/4 down from top and about 1/4 in from left-hand side, but I do think the standard gauge M.T. tracks are there still when this photo was taken by Lehr many years ago.
