This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer

push the Entity info
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 3 images, as of 17.12.2021 (17:21:08).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This is a snapshot type of image, taken most likely from a moving Train, as the foreground is rather blurred. Overall it is not a very sharp image either, but it shows a scene that is the first I have seen from this angle, so I'm happy I got it, even if seller manage to sell me it twice as somehow the seller was able to create negatives from this source image and pass that also along as original image, which it was not per say, negative was even worse in quality.
   In the foreground is the homes of people maybe fitting the name Poverty Gulch, as these are mainly smaller older Log Cabins or shed like structures, but there are some framed houses as well. About center of the colored view the structure of the Lillie Mine, holding the hoist and whatever else they needed, is seen with its headframe to the right. In the background the town of Cripple Creek spreads out.
   The dump of the Abe Lincoln is seen extending into the image from about center top/down right-hand side, and nearly at left-hand side about 13 down from top the upper part of the Midland Sampler structure is poking up its head, with the Midland Terminal wye tracks crossing Poverty Gulch on its characteristics trestles.
   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 image I've also found on the Internet at the Wyoming State Archives Photo Collection, dated as 1903 and photo by J.E. Stimson, which was a photographer of Cheyenne, Wyoming it seems. Sadly, that image is a thumbnail type only but to my eyes they are identical.
  The view itself is of a printed bad quality type showing an overlook over roof tops along Myers Avenue heading into Poverty Gulch below the trestles of the Midland Terminal Wye crossing it, with a freight train either leaving or coming into town, no engine can be seen.
  Can't identify any signs on neither copies of the image that I know about, but I do see the Midland Sampler about 1/3 down from top and about 2/5 in from right-hand side.
  The image Title mentioned Abe Lincoln mine is seen almost at left-hand edge and about 1/3 down from top, with a large dump heading out towards the right of the structures.
  On top of Gold Hill, straight up from the Midland Sampler, is seen the iconic Anchoria-Leland Mine, so easy to pick it out along the skyline.

Not the best photo, hand-colored and not very sharp in the first place. Blurred edges left and right, quite many scratches and damages to the photo itself, but still a good idea on how Gold Hill looked around September 1899 when this photo was taken. There is handwriting saying Copyright 1899 by E.A. Yelton, Photographer at 357 E. Bennett Ave., with what appears to be written Sunday Sep. 20-99 below there, but September 20, 1899 was a Wednesday, August same year has a Sunday 20th, but I am not sure what to trust, the date or the day, hence I went for the date and thought the Day was just a calculating error from whoever wrote the date.
* Near lower left-hand bottom/corner is the Cripple Creek Depot structure of Midland Terminal.
* Near lower right-hand side is seen part of the Midland Sampler with a string of boxcars in front of, and its Office Structure east of the Sampler building.
* Up on top of Gold Hill, is seen the Half Moon Mine structure, nearly 2/5 in from left-hand side and a small bit more than 2/5 up from bottom. Painted reddish and seen partly sideways, with some lighter shades of some image damages poking into the sky from it.
* Further to the right of the Half Moon is the structures of the Anchoria Leland Mine seen about middle of view sideways and a small bit more than 2/5 up from bottom. It's look make it an easy mine to spot I think.
* Even further to the right, a little lower than ridgeline of Gold Hill, is seen the Moon-Anchor Mine, a little bit more than 1/3 in from right-hand side and about 3/8 up from bottom.
Several other shaft houses are seen, but their names escape my memory for the time being, neither them, or any other the structures in this view, is really useful for any other purposes then to see where on God Hill they was located, hard to use them for a modelling purpose for instance and there is not much details to see.
