Delmonico Mine
This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer

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 2 images, as of 23.06.2022 (18:36:04).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This is one nicely closeup about 1895 photo type of the early Shaft house of the Delmonico Mine on west slope Bull Cliff or eastern Bull Hill, depending on how the area is, was, named. I know this as this image appears in an 1896 book, with views credited to Mr. Poley. Found on the Denver Public Library site (Call Number: P-944). I just worked over the image to create this view, straightened and cropped, colored and played around.
   I am pleased with the result, in background left I assume some of the homes linked to Altman is seen, and in the foreground of course the old but still somewhat size over it Shaft house of some operations on the Delmonico claim. I am certain this is the same Shaft house as appears on the Delmonico Plat Map at the more northern end of the lode claim.
   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 at mining operations on Bull Hill, is hampered sadly by the fact that the paper this postcard is made on is one of those not so good one, and while it scanned useful it is not very good as the dark areas are just dark, and there is some silvery like parts in those darker area, also messing with my scan.
   The scene itself is an interesting one, as it captures and identifying some of the mines at this area of Bull Hill, also shows the Golden Circle trackage in this area, with lots of small mine operations around on the ground, with homes and houses spread around and growing huge dumps.
   In upper right corner the American Eagle Shaft House and mine operation is seen marked as 'Eagles' while further down along the right-hand side, the Ore-House of the Shurtloff No. 2 Mine is seen about 2/5 down – this had a side-spur, leaving the mainline of the Golden Circle about halfway up the route around Bull Cliffs on the south side, pieces of that spur is seen in lower foreground just above the word 'Cripple' in the card's title text along the bottom of this postcard view.
