This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer

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 9 images, as of 21.03.2019 (00:24:41).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This overview of Victor as seen from somewhere in South-East  has been credited to several photographs, Schedin & Lehman is written on an Image seen at DPL, where also Julia Skolas has her name, but as this view is from after the 1899 fire which took out much of Victor, but before the head-frame of the Gold Coin was covered sometime in 1900/1901 timeframe, I can't see how she can have actually have taken this photo, so I think she bought it and the rights to it – and possible others – from the Schedin & Lehman company after she arrived at the District.
The usefulness of this image is really on the DPL view, as most of the mines are deep into the image and some of them are really not much to actually see anything other than knowing they are in this view in order to help place them in a mental map of the District/area.
* In the foreground left is the mine I've seen a close-up off from the other side, where it then was marked as "Great Central Mining & Milling Co.", and from other sources I have it linked as being named/known as the Maggie Mine.
* About middle bottom/top along the right-hand side is the top part of the Shaft-house of the Strong Mine, with the Victor High-School in front of it.
* About 2/5 down from top and about center left/right is the large smokestack of the Gold Coin mine, with the Head-frame at right of the smokestack – best seen on the DPL large image. This helps date the image except I don't know the date the head-frame was enclosed in the brick structure most common known as the Gold Coin mine.
* Above the smokestack of the Gold Coin, high up on Squaw Mtn. is a dump area seen, there is a small Shaft-house there, again I refer to the DPL as best view, that is the Nellie V. mine.
* About 1/4 in from right-hand side, and about 1/3 down from top, is the large Ajax Mine complex seen, with the big dump out over the hillside of Battle Mountain. Looking at the DPL view one can actually see they are extending the Ore-house towards right in this view.
* Just right of the Ajax is the upper shaft of the Dead Pine, located along the Golden Circle, they did as the Portland Mine did, they have a tunnel over the tracks of the Golden Circle narrow gauge line, except here it is made of wood, not steel as on the Portland property. Can't say it is on the view, I know it is there, seen as a dark spot between Ajax and Dead Pine, but it is too far away to be of any use at all.
* Further to the right, just left of the massive Portland dumps, where the hill curves, there lays the Granite Mine, seen with its Shaft-house and power house, smokestack and all, albeit at a to large distance to be of any good use for a model work, it helps in determining where in the area it was located.
* The Dillon Mine has actually two shafts seen in this view, again it is the DPL view that is really of any use to such image research, a slight distance left of the shaft-house of the Strong mine on the right-hand side, there is a small Head-frame and small hoist house seen on the hillside with a dump – that is located on the Dillon claim. Further up the hill, more hidden away due to distance and such, is the more commonly associated boxy type of Shaft-house of the Dillon seen where it lays just below the mainline of the M.T. climbing the hills towards the Portland mine area outside the view at right. Seen best on the DPL view at a 100% look, or try the 200% and go near right-hand corner, the only shaft-house in this area with lettering on the side of the structure.
* Again, the DPL is of help to locate the Ore-house of the Mary Cashen Mine, as it is poking up among the roofs of Victor structures, about halfway between the Strong and the Gold Coin mines.
* Also, on the DPL Image the Fortuna Mine is seen quite well in the 100% view, just where the word 'Skolas' is written about 2/5 up from bottom and about 1/3 in from right-hand side. Showing a small Head-Frame west of the Hoist & Power House, with what might have been the loo west of the head-frame or possible a shed for dynamite?

Sadly, this is a printed view, but I feel it is an important view as it fails to show the brick Shaft House of the Gold Coin Mine, only the covered walkway from shaft to the ore house is standing there. The head frame though feels wrong for the one that was put up after the fire, inside the shaft house, which made me first think this is was a later image, after they tore down the shaft house of the Gold Coin around end of 1920.
But then a friend, La Jean Greeson, pointed out to me that the Catholic Church, across from the Washington School – a church still standing in Victor – is not yet built in this view, and that dates this to be before they started building the church in 1902. Thanks La Jean! The before mention Washington School can be seen about 1/3 in from the right-hand side, and about half bottom/top, and the church shall be built left of this school structure, at the corner of 2nd Street and Portland Avenue.
The use of this smaller head frame and wood structures for the Gold Coin tells how important it was to get the mine up and running again, but they certainly have changed things allot in the ground where Gold Coin was located. As I have a dated photo from July 1901 with a completed Gold Coin in brick, this image here must be from around 1900, not sure exact but the Bank Block structure, later to be Victor Hotel, was completed by end of December 1899 – this structure can be seen as the large 4 story corner building behind the smokestack of the Gold Coin, about 1/3 up from bottom and same in from the right-hand side.
Up near the F. & C.C. railroad yard, depot, near lower left corner, the Elks Lodge structure at corner of 3rd street and Diamond Avenue, seems to either being rebuilt or built, as it is clearly in this view a more ruin looking structure then the nice-looking structure it is.

As the postcard is dated July 13, 1908 on the backside this photograph must be older than that date... Sadly the image itself is rather dark and while it is a photo type of card, it has lots of reflections to it and is hard to clean up. The view itself is yet another view of the town of Victor from up on Squaw Mountain, this time the Gold Coin mine is not as centered as it often was.
Off to the right hand-hand side, a little further up then 1/3 from the bottom, is the largest edition of the Shaft House of the St. Patrick mine that I have seen, with a growing dump north of it, which will say to the left.

Not the best view of the Gold Coin mine as it is only seen partly on the left-hand side under some smoke. But it helps tell the story on how the ground outside of it appeared at the time of this photo. Just too bad there is not a known date to this image.

Yet another Victor view, taken from Squaw Mountain somewhere. Near center of view is the large Gold Coin mine, helping date this image to after the mine was rebuilt in bricks. It reads "Victor" on the lower left corner. Measures 6.50 x 4.50, including backing paper which it is adhered to. Sadly, the paper it is made on has some issues when it comes to clarity and what is dark in this view is dark forever here as it is not possible to lighten the parts. Quite some shininess is also seen, especially in lower end of the image on the right-hand side.
* About 1/3 up from lower left-hand corner, part of the dump and cribbing of the Mary Cashen is seen.
* The Gold Coin is also about 1/3 up from bottom center, and if one moves further up on the image, up along an invisible line from the smokestack, a couple of smaller mines are seen. The one straight up from smokestack is the Maggie mine of the "Great Central-M&M-Co.", as I seen it named in a photo close-up. It is a longer shaft house with a higher part in one end and a dump in front of it.
* I've yet to fully identify the shorter, more whitish, shaft house seen just left of the former mention invisible line, and a little closer down the photo from the Maggie mine.
* Moving to the right-hand side of the view, near the edge of the view, almost at center top/down, the shaft-house of the St. Patrick mine can be seen, here seen as a typical shaft house structure with the high part and sloped roof and all.
* Jefferson Mine is seen below and across the street from the Victor High School, seen about middle top/down and near left-hand side.

This is a photoprint version of a glass negative that I also have, it is a shot of Victor from the area on Battle Mountain closing in on Squaw Mountain.  There is an unknown mine to me at the time of this writing [18.02.2017] in the foreground center bottom, then the Midland Terminal main track comes on a filling crossing over from the Battle Mtn. to the Squaw Mtn. hill side.
Further downhill, about 1/3 in from left-hand side, and about same from bottom, one see a crib-wall in a curve and this is where the original High Line entered Victor town, track is seen there as well. To go to this location, the trolley had to use a tunnel to cross the ground of the Dead Pine mine with its dump and a big crib wall - I have seen on a Sanborn map an indication of a tunnel there too, and for me, this picture helps now to show how it looked in that area.
One another thing I like with this photo is the fact that I can see Gold Coin under construction, I can see the Head Frame, the top of the brick structures is open, and only thing that is covered is the ore house.
Way down, in topology below the Gold Coin but in this image, about an inch above the Gold Coin, to the right of the smokestack, is the Shaft-house of the St. Patrick Mine visible as well.

This image is taken sometimes before October 17, 1903 as on that date a somewhat larger cut of this appears on a postcard I have, which is stamped Colorado Springs that date. The view is of the northwest side of the Gold Coin mine, and of course of the town of Victor, also shows a few other mines I am happy to see. Even if I have had a hard time decoding which is which, I think this view is a good one of the Gold Coin, at least as it gives some details of the lesser seen side of the mine.

This photo, from Squaw Mountain, has a narrow time frame as it is from after the fire of 1899, which burned large amount of Victor, including the Gold coin Mine seen at left side, about 1/3 up on the image. But, it is not too many years after it either, as I see the Gold Coin head frame is visible, and they appear to do the rebuilding of it in bricks, so maybe this is taken in 1900? I see the main walls of the engine house of the Gold Coin is up, but no trusses for the roof, and they seem to be building the boiler room, while the ore-house is already up.
