Cripple Creek Sampler

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 17.12.2021 (17:21:08).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Sadly being from a printed source this closeup shot is not very good, taken from the New Year 1903 issue of the newspaper Cripple Creek Times, appearing in a group of three images in what is more an advertisement text feel then an actual article about the company.
  This pic shows the Cripple Creek Sampler of the Cripple Creek Sampling and Ore Co., and several men are posing for some unknown reason. It is taken at the lower end, southwest end, and that makes it a rare view and I like this shot, not because it is a good one, because that it is not, the quality of the image suck!
  But I like it due to it in addition to its being a rather closeup view, it shows better the lower part of this large imposing structure and I get a view of a structure I so far only had seen from a great distance. I see there are 12-numbered chutes, making me wonder how that worked with boxcars which is what is appearing in this view.
  I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was greyish, 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 view of Gold Hill from a street in southern Cripple Creek is mislabeled to be an early Victor scene for some unknown reason. Being this is from a printed card in a small more modern postcard folder it is not the greatest quality, but one gets an idea of the area it pictured. I've been unable to pinpoint the street in the foreground, but I think it might be the First Street, possible south Colorado Ave., but I doubt it as this don't look that far up the hill.
* Either way, about center left/right and 1/3 down from top, behind the two-story house in foreground, on get to see the north half of the Cripple Creek Sampler, located up along the M.T. roadbed, with the Short Line railroad below it, having come around the hill at right hand side. Incidentally, the original locating of the sampler was along the F. & C.C. grade seen just below the top/down center on the right-hand side, and would have been hidden by the same two-story house.
* About 1/3 down from top, and 1/3 from left-hand side, a long structure will be seen, that is the Trolley Barn for the High/Low Lines of the Electric System of the Short Line railroad. The big dump just right of the Trolley barn I think is part of the Cripple Creek & Gold Hill Deep Mining & Development Company operations.
* Straight up from the chimney on the before mention 2-story house there is a big dump that I think is part of the Midget operations.
* About center left/right and not fully 1/6 down from top, above the before mention Midget, is the characteristic shape of the large Shaft-House of the Anchoria-Leland mine seen against the sky at top of Gold Hill.
