View of the Trolley car named Grace who poses on the 7.5 percent grade on the west slope of Gold Hill, climbing Gold Hill above Poverty Gulch and high above Cripple Creek, along the original steep High Line grade. In 1902 the line was rerouted over a less steep alignment.
* The two Head-frame type of mine operations seen just above the lower end/back end of the Trolley is as far as I can tell operations on the May Queen lode claim on the left and the Granite Hill lode claim on the right.
* About 2/3 up from bottom and about 1/4 in from left-hand side is the structures of the Abe Lincoln Mine, and way down in the gulch one see the M.T. Wye Trestles at the Depot grounds and to the left of them is the spur to the top of the Midland Sampler seen cutting up the hill from a spur a little down from the Abe Lincoln.
   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 view looking up Poverty Gulch is credited to Julia Skolas but has had some text scratched out from the source negative making me wonder if this is one of those she bought the right for from an earlier photographer that I've seen evidence of before.
  It is an earlier view, the original High Line is still running up Poverty Gulch and I see no trace of the still to come Short Line grade up Gold Hill so this dates the view to be from before 1900, and she was not in the area then. Either way, it captures the feel of the area, how mining and living was on top of each other and there are many mines visible, whereas I only have names of a few of them.
   In foreground is the Lillie Mine, then a small windlass type of operation, before Abe Lincoln No. 2 and No. 1 can be picked up on the left side, with the Chicago Tunnel structures seen behind the named Shaft house of Abe Lincoln main shaft. Up to the left of those are the operations on the May Queen lode claim on the left and the Granite Hill lode claim on the right, more behind. Further up the larger Shaft house of the Rebecca Mine with its easy to recognize cupola on the roof is seen, with the C. O. D. Mine to the left hardly visible, and behind the bend at left, outside the view from this angle would the Gold King mine be.
   The Shaft houses at right, about 1/3 from top, I am not certain about as it is so cramped with claims in this area, but I know the Blue Chime, Clayton E. and T.E.M.O.M.J. lode claims was in this area so I assume it is one of those, but I do not know as per today so I dare not say so and so.
   So far, as of Oct. 26, 2021 I know of this view used as 10 postcard editions, where there are slightly differences in each card, from different backside, publisher, or any of the four sides can have variations of a millimeter or more where it is cropped from the source. Also, the coloring, paper quality or darkness in the view helps with differentiation these editions.;
Colored view; print-type, not the best look (this postcard).
B/W; photo-type, great quality look, not dark but a little washed out maybe, and the text put on by Julia Skolas is all visible. But card shows that source image is scratched and damaged a little on left side where the Orehouse of Abe Lincoln is shown.
B/W; photo-type, dark view, 'Poverty' part of text at bottom cut off at bottom of y making 'Gulch' part more or less unreadable. Same damage left side and paper used makes the dark parts dark.
B/W; photo-type, even darker view, hard to make more visible, 'Gulch' part of text at bottom partly cut off but is readable. Same damage left side and paper used makes the dark parts dark.
B/W; photo-type, great quality look, not dark, and the text put on by Julia Skolas is all visible with about text height of space below. Same damage on left side.
Colored view; print-type, not the best look, has a couple of millimeters more view at bottom, compared to my other card.
B/W; photo-type, slightly brighter card, one gets to see some of the details a little better. The text put on by Julia Skolas is all visible with about half text height of space below. Same damage on left side.
B/W; photo-type, card appears washed out somewhat, and paper used makes it appears not as a good quality card. The text put on by Julia Skolas is all visible with about half text height of space below. Same damage on left side, it actually appears to be prominent.
Colored view; print-type, not the best look, colored differently, has a couple of millimeters less view at bottom, and the right, compared to the other cards.
Colored view; print-type, appears to be brighter, maybe the best look, colored differently, and is cut at bottom a couple of millimeters below top of roofline.

View is a negative type of Photo taken by a camera of an older type of Photograph, with not the best quality film so it is rather grainy sadly. But, the view is nice, of the Trolley car named Grace climbing Gold Hill high above Poverty Gulch, along the original steep High Line grade.
* The Smokestack poking up near lower right-hand corner behind the Trolley is part of the Chicago Tunnel operation, while the two Head-frame type of mine operations seen just above the lower end/back end of the Trolley is as far as I can tell operations on the May Queen lode claim on the left and the Granite Hill lode claim on the right.
* About middle top/down and about 1/4 in from left-hand side is the structures of the Abe Lincoln Mine, and way down in the gulch one see the M.T. Wye Trestles and to the left of them is the spur to the top of the Midland Sampler seen cutting up the hill from a spur a little down from the Abe Lincoln.
