Title on Image:
Portland Mine, 900-Foot Level, No. 3 Hidden Treasure vein - 35 Feet Wide.
Andrew James Harlan
To be from a printed source I am quite pleased with how I got this one colored, except the men are to yellow for my taste but that is for another time, for now this more gives me association of candle light and what a large flash Mr. Harlan must have used to capture this scene.
View is from the 900-Foot Level in the Portland mine, most likely in grounds belonging to the Hidden Treasure lode claim, as this view was titled to be No. 3 Hidden Treasure (vein), 35 Feet Wide. It shows some mine tracks with a outside the view crossing in foreground, and a tunnel in the background. Four men are posing, one Foreman or important person as he stands apart from the other three men that hangs around a ore-car, all looking to the right so I assume the vein is visible at the right-hand side had we been there.
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.
Image Note:My Collection; From page 36 in a 1901 Annual Report for the Portland G.M. Co. I procured the colored version.
