This sadly bad view of the El Paso Mill in Florence is one of very few known views of this mill that was located southeast of the town of Florence, and which was to treat gold ore from the Cripple Creek Mining District using the Chlorination Process.
   While this view appears in an August 1898 publication, I can use the only Sanborn Map that shows this mill, the January 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map, to see that the direction of the view is looking southwest. The railroad line in foreground is dual gauge and is the main track for the branch line that served this and a second chlorination mill, in addition to a smelter. I think the outbound track is the spur that goes back to the high narrow structure that Sanborn call the Chlorination Building. The Inbound track is partly seen at left edge about middle top/down, where an oil tank car is seen. On the hill behind that car, outside the view at left, there was an oil-tank according to the Sanborn map, and text in the article where this image appeared.
   Building where the 3-smokestacks appears at left are the Power Plant House for most part, and then the large high one is the Crusher and Dryer structure, followed by a structure holding Bedding Floors, Roasters and Cooling area. The even higher, narrower structure more to the right is, as said, marked as being the Chlorination Building with a Belt House and Refinery more towards the photographer. Further right there is a Carpenter and Blacksmith shown as smaller structures, with a more shed like structure closer to the photographer. There is no trace of the Concentrator Building seen on the Sanborn which should been visible at the right-hand side, indicating it was a later construction then this 1898 source had.
   I did procure the colored version of this 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.

   Judging from a 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map and the fact this view appears in a 1898 book I think the direction of the view is looking west, and the main ore deliveries seems to have been outside the view at left, where the closest building at left is the Power Plant House for most part, and then the large high one is the Crusher and Dryer structure, followed by a structure holding Bedding Floors, Roasters and Cooling area. The high narrower structure more to the right is marked as being the Chlorination Building with a Belt House and Refinery more towards the photographer. Further right there is a Carpenter and Blacksmith shown as smaller structures, only half of the Blacksmith is visible.
