Sadly not a quality great view, but still a great view as it is a rare view at the Golconda Mine Shaft no.1 operation on Squaw Mountain! This view also has marked out a Shaft no. 2 and no. 3 and I think one of those might also be the Discovery Shaft on the Golconda lode claim. Sometime after 1896 the main working shaft moved away from the structure in this view here, to further up the hill, don't know why.
   Victor town is located outside the view at right, the view shows all three railroad spurs that was on Squaw Mountain, with the mainline of the F. & C. C. making up the lower one just beyond the ridgeline of the roof for the Golconda structure in left foreground.  About 2/3 up from bottom is the Victor branch from the M. T. mainline seen a little bit further up the hill, where a string of boxcars marks a siding along the east slope of Squaw Mtn near upper right.
   I did procure the colored version of this image as I think it is nicer. Source is 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.
