The mine seen here in the lower half of the center of this view, is located along the old F. & C.C. line, now the road to victor from Cripple Creek, just as it started its trip into Squaw Gulch. My old 1903 topo-map has a structure in that area, and a look at Google Map gives a structure ruin and dump in that area. And from that I could figure out that this is the Alpha and Omega mine, situated on the Omega lode claim withy the Alpha lode claim further down into the Squaw Gulch area downhill at right. If the photographer of this view had turned more towards right, we should also have been able to see down to the Caledonia mine structures, which is outside the view at lower right corner, too bad the view was not that wide to encompass that area as well.
