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 29.01.2023 (15:15:24).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This artistic drawing/painting from no later than 1901 is quite nice even if it is a printed type based view, this due to the large size and the fact it is an artistic view, making it possible to be more raw and still look good! In the background looms the Pike's Peak and its range of mountains, and in the foreground is two large Milling Plants of the United States Reduction & Refining Co., located outside of Colorado City. The plants is the Standard Mill and the Colorado-Philadelphia Mill, why they were so close to each-other I cannot tell, but from what I gather they used a different approach to the treatment of the Cripple Creek ores.
   I did procure the colored version of the image. Source was 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.

This postcard view of the massive Colorado-Philadelphia Mill, and the Standard Mill helps give the impression on how huge these mills can be, laying in the outskirts to the west of Colorado City, with what I believe is the mainline of the Colorado Midland seen along the bottom edge.
   If I am correct the structures to the right are part of the Standard Mill, while the ones furthest away, left side of the card, those are the structures of the Colorado-Philadelphia Mill.
