This page has a total of 2 images, as of 17.12.2021 (17:21:08).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This is sadly a bad quality print-based edition of this view from around 1896, showing the shaft house and structures at the King of Diamonds mine of the Lincoln mine group on Lincoln Hill, in the northern end of the District, northwest of Gillett. But still, it is the best I have, as it is the only one that I ever seen!
   The scene itself shows a man emptying an ore-car near left side, with a structure to the right that appears to have been built over time as the roof is different from left to right-hand side of the structure that makes up the shaft house of the King of Diamonds. In the foreground a supply of logs, and there appears to be a frame for a structure yet not finished at middle top/down on the right-hand side. Mountains in the background would be the Pike's Peak Range.
   I did procure the colored version of this image, if that is what you see. Source was dark 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 is sadly a very bad quality print-based edition of this view from around 1896, showing the location of two or three shafts of the Lincoln mine group on Lincoln Hill, in the northern end of the District, northwest of Gillett.
   In regards to what is tried shown here, I thought the left-most structure was the Shaft House known as Gibbons on the T.F. Gibbons lode, but the profile do not match, distance might though, and being in the view I assume it is regarded as part of the Lincoln group of mines but I have no idea which one after I had to disregard the Gibbons. Could be so many claims so for now, it will remain a mystery!
   What I do know, is that about 1/3 in from right-hand side the Lincoln Mine Shaft House itself is seen with the smokestack and open cupola, confirmed by another view of that exact shaft house, and to the right thereof is what I assume is the King of Diamonds Shaft House. That last mention structure appears at first glance to be a little different from the other view I have of the King of Diamonds, but the distance is greater, the quality of the view is bad, and there is a blob in this view here that might as well be the cupola on the roof from the other view I have, so I am pretty sure I have decoded the view properly.
