This is a view I Just had to Get!!! Being a view of the Union Mill gold ore reduction works on a hill north of Florence, Colorado, south of the Cripple Creek Mining District, it is an important view to help me understand the area better. In regard to the direction of the view in this photo, I am not confident enough to say for certain as I have never seen a footprint of this mill, there are no known Sanborn Fire Insurance Map for instance of it. I have seen this and a couple of other views, and that is it! But, if I were forced to guess I would say this is a northeast view, but I do not know.
   What I do know is that this was a huge Chlorination Mill built to handle Cripple Creek ore, and that it had two other neighbors close by of mills, and not a too far distance to the west there was a third competitor in form of a Cyanide mill, located alongside the mainline of the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad while this mill, and its neighbor mills was on a branch line.

This view across what appears to be prairie land at the many structures making up the Union Mill located north of Florence, on top of hill sort of, overlooking the Arkansas Valley where Florence was looking, I assume, never been there so I might be wrong!
   I do not know the direction of this view, but I think it might be in a northerly direction possible. This mill was one of three along the Vesta Branch, at that before mention hilltop, and in 1903 it belongs to the United States Reduction & Refining Co.
   I did procure the colored version of the 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.
