Description:
While the image quality is not that great due to the age and distance and all that, it still is a very important image to have! I struggle a little dating it as while it has a post stamp of 1908, I am unable to find the switchback from the M.T. up to the coal bins of Elkton Mine, which is shown on a USGS topographic map dated 1902/1903, which together with the showing of the Low Line which dates this after 1900, should narrow the timeframe down quite much, but the Elkton Mine structures gives me the impression this is way later then near 1900.
graphic for visual presentation of text This due to the fact Sanborn 1900 (CC Sheet 17) shows a different structure here, while photo matches better with Sanborn 1908 map (CC Sheet 30). But then again, that later map fails to show some of the mine structures seen here so that suggest this view predates it. And as my USGS map show a spur not here I must admit that this is from a timeframe of less than 3-years. More research is needed.
graphic for visual presentation of text Near bottom of this view lays a row of houses which forms the upper part of the settlement know as Eclipse, along Eclipse Gulch, stretching from about where F. & C.C. crosses the gulch and to around where the Economic Mill was further down the gulch at left, as far as I know.
graphic for visual presentation of text The grade of the F. & C.C. is seen about 1/4 up from the bottom, with a passenger train near right-hand side, heading towards Cripple Creek. There are several mine operations seen below and above that grade, but my knowledge is way too limited to tell anything about any of them.
graphic for visual presentation of text The town of Elkton is seen on the lower slope of Raven hill in the right-most half of the photo around middle of view top/down, where the large Elkton Mine makes up about center of this card, with the railroad grade of the M.T. running just left of the mine.
graphic for visual presentation of text The Low Line is seen about 1/3 up from bottom near right-hand side, climbing the hill towards left and about middle top/down and about 1/3 in from left-hand side it changes directions and goes towards right, cross over the M.T. on trestle and passes the Elkton mine on the right side.
graphic for visual presentation of text The Thompson large Shaft House (I think) is seen about center of view top/down and about 1/5 in from left-hand side, sadly I don't know of any Sanborn map of this structure, not that I can recall at the time of this writing [08.08.2017].
graphic for visual presentation of text There is also another mine structure at right foreground of the Thompson, left of the Low Line grade, but I dare not guestimate a name for that mine, nor do I dare take a stab at the name of the ones seen inside the town of Elkton either. One is easy to spot, just right of the mainline of M.T. with a large dump area, the other is more hidden among houses, still with a dump though. One day I hope to learn all this, one day.
graphic for visual presentation of text Raven Hill has it shares of mines as well, but the one I sort of care about is the Bostwick Shaft House, seen about 1/3 down from top and slightly right of center of view sideways, up from right-hand side of the Elkton mine.
graphic for visual presentation of text 08.08.2018; Elkton Public School is seen about 1/3 in from right-hand side and about middle top/down, seen as a lighter painted structure with space around it and built upon over the years so roof is in various directions.

Description:
This turned out to NOT be a regular postcard, which I thought it to be, bought with 7 other cards, where they all came from a Cripple Creek Short Line Brochure where there are views on one side and maps and info text on the other side, and where the image parts have been cut and pasted unto some unknown postcard and the saved for posterity in that way.
graphic for visual presentation of text This particular card is pasted unto a postcard marked on the backside as 'The San Diego on Broadway' with details, including a specific Panama-California Exposition San Diego Logo. Also, hand written in a pencil is the number 178. Looking at other cards, I think this was done as a memory of a trip to that specific California Exposition, which was from January 1, 1915 to January 1, 1917.
graphic for visual presentation of text -> View is from western slope of Bull Hill, near the High Line where it passes by the Logan mine, looking down Eclipse Gulch, passed one of the shafts on the Gold Sovereign Mine, with the Cresson Mine seen at the bottom about 1/3 up from bottom and 1/4 in from right-hand side. Further up Raven Hill the Moose Mine is seen about halfway down from top right and about 1/5 in from right-hand side. The train seen on the tracks near upper left is drawn in on the Golden Circle main line circling around Battle Mountain.

Another 'Nice to Have' image, but nothing else. Photographed at unknown time/date at unknown location, along the now automobile road running on the former Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad grade in Phantom Canon. Somewhat blurred and a bit out of focus also make it a waste of money and way to costly, stupid me!

Description:
Not the most interesting view I have, but I still felt it was important as it is showing the now planked trestle bridge at the so-called Lone Tree location in Phantom Canon, along the former Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad Grade, now a road for automobiles to use. I always thought of this as a downhill view, but as I've never been here myself I was sadly hugely mistaken and should be ashamed of myself. Again, a friend and visitor to my page set me straight, thank you Ryan!
graphic for visual presentation of text This is a view going uphill, towards North, and that is a very useful information Ryan gave me as I have more views at this location, both as postcards and as photographs and thanks to his friendly nudge in the right direction I can now better put those images into the right position in my head! And if any of you reading this has been mislead by my former text, my apologies!

Not the most interesting view I have, but I still felt it was important enough that I have two copies, this being my second edition of this scene, which is showing the now planked over trestle bridge at the so-called Lone Tree location in Phantom Canon, along the former Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad Grade, now known as the Phantom Canon Road, a road for automobiles to use and no more trains! I used to think this was looking downhill, but I've been wrong due to me never been there myself, but now I know thanks to a friend and visitor to my page who set me straight, thank you Ryan!
graphic for visual presentation of text This is a view going uphill, towards North, and that is a very useful information Ryan gave me as I have more views at this location, both as postcards and as photographs and thanks to his friendly nudge in the right direction I can now better put those images into the right position in my head!

graphic for visual presentation of text By the Way, Ryan shared with me a recent photo he took a couple of years ago, the bridge is much wider now, the 'Lone Tree' is long been 'No Tree' but there appears to possible be a new 'Lone Tree' coming up as I see a green dot on his photo, close to where that tree is on this postcard view of mine here.

A view along the Phantom Canon road, on the former roadbed of the Florence & Cripple Creek railroad, and while it did look familiar to me, I was never able to connect the view in my head, until a friend and visitor to my page came to my rescue, thank you Ryan!
graphic for visual presentation of text This is a view facing/looking north, towards Alta Vista, Victor, at the upper end of the Wilbur Loop area, at the place called Rock Point. For some unknown reason, the photographer Lehr decided not to show the Rock Walls at this location but instead focus on the showing of what appeared as a cutting, and how the road curves towards it.
graphic for visual presentation of text Studying the image after I know what to look for, I can say that there is a small piece of the Rock Wall seen below the road, it can be picked out about 1/3 in from right-hand side with the top of that wall about 1/3 up from bottom.

Description:
This view of the Strong Mine is quite a good one to tell how it looked sometime in 1909 when T.J. Hileman took the photo which was the base for this postcard view presented here. Down left is the yard of the F. & C.C. railroad, while the mainline of the Victor branch of the M.T. is shown entering the scene along the right-hand side, where there is also a side-spur for delivering coal to the powerplant of the Strong Mine for their operations, seen here with a single M.T, boxcar (no. 211) parked on the trestle, while the mainline where passenger trains was running is this side of that trestle, dropping downgrade to reach the Depot not seen in this view due to be behind the Strong Mine Ore-house.
graphic for visual presentation of text Just behind the before mention ore-house is the Ore-house and headframe of the Mary Cashen Mine seen, with dumps around it and some of their cribbing's is seen behind the big truss bridge coming out of the Strong Mine Ore-House, extending across the F. & C.C. yard unto another smaller bridge and taking it to a rock-house outside this view which delivered dump ore to Short Line cars to be used as ballast, fill-mass and similar along the lines, from what I have understood it as.
graphic for visual presentation of text Up near right top corner the dumps and Shaft House of the Ajax Mine is seen poking up into the sky, and about center left-right and about 1/5 down from top, there is the dump of the Nellie V. Mine with a smaller two-post Head Frame and a hoist house and shed together as a long structure from what I can gather in a high dpi scan of this view. This do not match what Sanborn 1908 say the Nellie V. mine was to look like, as that say it is a shaft house type of structure.
graphic for visual presentation of text I wonder if I see the Columbine Tunnel or if it is another one which is seen a distance to the left of the extension of Diamond Avenue up to the M.T. tracks in the higher dpi scans. Seen about 1/5 in from the left-hand side and 2/5 down from the top, a dump is there in addition to a tunnel portal and some sheds to the left of the adit opening.

This canon was well named. From start to finish weird and unique formations fill one with awe and admiration. Out of the top of this huge rock grows a pine tree without apparent nourishment or moisture.

This view of Victor from Battle Mountain is a nice one when looking at the online sources of the non-postcard view. It holds so many goodies it is hard to describe them all.
graphic for visual presentation of textThe Gold Coin mine is seen in quite a nice look, just to the left of the center of the view.
graphic for visual presentation of textFurther up front is also seen the Ore-house of the Mary Cashen mine, with a near square head frame and part of the cribbing to hold the waste rock in place as they had not the same luxury as Gold Coin to transport waste away through a long tunnel.
graphic for visual presentation of text At left of the orehouse is the structures of the Victor Public Sampler, located just below the M.T. spurs and sort of sandwiched in between that and the switchback spur down to the orehouse of the Strong Mine further to the left, outside this view. Piece of the tail-end of that spur is seen along the cribbing and head frame of the Mary Cashen when looking near right hand side where the Victor depot of the M.T. is seen.
graphic for visual presentation of text Way of in the background, right of the Gold Coin but sort of just over the south part (left) part of the Gold Coin Club structure, the Golconda structures can be seen on the Internet sources when fully zoomed into the view. That mine is hard to find good images of.

This postcard I've seen in two editions, one with a red/pink color on the text with the Number and Title of the card, and with an Embossed Image Part, and then this version her, with a Blue color on the text with the Number and Title of the card and no embossed image.
graphic for visual presentation of text The scene is of the massive Economic Mill climbing the hillside of Squaw Mountain on the slopes down into Eclipse Gulch with connection to both road and railroads. The F. & C.C. served the mill from the left-hand side with a siding, while the Short Line, using its Low Line route, would have a siding in from the right-hand side of the mill in this view. The long Ore-shed structure with the sort of black opening about 1/3 down from top was laid with dual gauge tracks to allow all railroad cars to deliver ore. In addition, there was a double level trestle entering the main structures, seen about middle of the view, where the lower level was holding the 18-inch gauge tracks coming from the Gold Coin mine in Victor through the Columbine-Victor Tunnel, while the upper level would allow horse drawn ore-wagons to deliver its ores to the mill.
graphic for visual presentation of text This mill changes its looks over the years it existed, and this is among the latest looks it had before it sadly burned early in 1907 and to be never rebuilt and just fade away in the history of the district as a failure due to the choice of Chlorination process where Cyanide would have been a better choice it turned out.

This view is from along the Victor-Cripple Creek road, running on the former roadbed of the Florence & Cripple Creek, looking towards the Mary McKinney Mine about center sideways and its huge crib-wall. If one could have walked into the view and hitched a ride with the automobile seen one would have ended up in Cripple Creek.
graphic for visual presentation of text The Hill in distance left-hand side is part of Gold Hill, and I wonder if part of the old Short Line roadbed is visible up there near the skyline. I can't sadly see anything though in a high-resolution scan of 1200dpi, as there is just too much blur, and overall the whole card is sadly not in a good shape due to someone at some time in the past having spilled something over it.

Sadly this image did not shed much light unto what did happen with the area the old Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad used for its yard in Cripple Creek, town which is seen in the background, making me wonder who and why that person wrote Victor on the backside of this postcard, as whoever have some basic knowledge of the District should not be able to do such a mistake in location!
graphic for visual presentation of text Either way, by time this image is taken there are no railroad structures left, I can see the flattish ground where the station used to sit, about center top/down and about 1/3 in from left-hand side, and there appears to possible be a small lake or something further left as I see what appears to be a small waterfall, almost as wide as high, but I did not know there was a stream in that area.
graphic for visual presentation of text I got this card as I had hopes it might shed light on the left overs after the railroad grade was abandoned by 1917 between Cripple Creek and Victor, but I guess the years that went by and the reusing the grade as a road has wiped out what was left before the photographer took this view sometimes in the 1920's I think.

Description:
This view, from possible 1912 Labor Day Festivities, or earlier, is taken in what I look upon as eastern Victor, with several houses seen. Also, many spectators are looking from behind a fence in safety while several men on horses rides around working so to speak. Up in upper left corner a small part of the Independence Mine can be picked out from the dumps seen, possible part of the Ore-House, while a long string of F. & C.C. Boxcars lines the hillside further down.

I have seen till now [08.04.2018] eleven uses of this scene for postcards, where there often is just a millimeter or two of differences along the edges, making it into different crop editions, and I been able to buy some of those quite cheaply so that is kind of cool.

Description:
When I first got this, I did not believe the date of 1908 on it, but I've come to believe it as years went by and I did learn more about the District. Anaconda was said to be totally burned up in the 1904 fire that took most of the town, but I believe this upper portion, just below the Florence & Cripple Creek line, was saved from the flames and it was the lower portion of town that perished. I've seen an Anaconda view I know is after the fire and there are structures in this area here, looking rather sad and empty, but still standing and as many of them look the same as views from before fire they must have survived the fire.
graphic for visual presentation of text The quality of this card is not that good, I got hold of a better copy years later, but that also had issues with fading and damages, so I never got a great view of this scene! This view is taken from below the F. & C.C. grade, looking across the town towards Guyot Hill on the right part of this view and more like Raven hill on the left side of the image.

Description:
I've seen this image used three times, for this card and another postcard where there are a couple of extra millimeters visible on the right-hand side, plus I've seen it used in a postcard folder.
graphic for visual presentation of text The view is from the railroad side of the Mary McKinney mine, showing several box cars parked on sidings nearby and at the mine itself. It also shows part of Anaconda at right-hand side about 1/3 up from bottom, the part that survived the 1904 fire, as I see no signs of structures at left side of image, and I believe there should been visible something there if the town was still there.
graphic for visual presentation of text The tracks in the foreground belong to the Midland Terminal, but the Mary McKinney mine was once served by dual gauge as the F. & C.C was also having a spur to the mine, entering in from left-hand side, running parallel with the Shaft House to serve that and the coal bins at the power plant seen with all those smokestacks to the right of the shaft-house.
graphic for visual presentation of text Behind the smokestacks of the Power House of the Mary McKinney you can see the Ore House of the Anaconda Mine, located down by the F. & C.C. yard in Anaconda, but image is too bad to really make out any details. Which is sad, as up on Gold Hill seen in the background, there is seen the Shaft House of the Anchoria-Leland about 1/4 in from right-hand side and about same from top, with the Ore-House and trestle of the Lexington Mine seen just to the right of the Anchoria-Leland.
graphic for visual presentation of text Or even more sad, there is visible a mill on the hill side above the Low Line grade, seen about 1/3 down from top and 1/7 in from right-hand side, a mill I believe might be known as Anaconda Mill, but I might be mistaken where that mill was located as info been a little scarce, but it fit the location of west slope Gold Hill.

graphic for visual presentation of text This view of Gold Hill from a street in southern Cripple Creek is mislabeled to be an early Victor scene for some unknown reason. Being this is from a printed card in a small more modern postcard folder it is not the greatest quality, but one gets an idea of the area it pictured. I've been unable to pinpoint the street in the foreground, but I think it might be the First Street, possible south Colorado Ave., but I doubt it as this don't look that far up the hill.
graphic for visual presentation of text* Either way, about center left/right and 1/3 down from top, behind the two-story house in foreground, on get to see the north half of the Cripple Creek Sampler, located up along the M.T. roadbed, with the Short Line railroad below it, having come around the hill at right hand side. Incidentally, the original locating of the sampler was along the F. & C.C. grade seen just below the top/down center on the right-hand side, and would have been hidden by the same two-story house.
graphic for visual presentation of text* About 1/3 down from top, and 1/3 from left-hand side, a long structure will be seen, that is the Trolley Barn for the High/Low Lines of the Electric System of the Short Line railroad. The big dump just right of the Trolley barn I think is part of the Cripple Creek & Gold Hill Deep Mining & Development Company operations.
graphic for visual presentation of text* Straight up from the chimney on the before mention 2-story house there is a big dump that I think is part of the Midget operations.
graphic for visual presentation of text* About center left/right and not fully 1/6 down from top, above the before mention Midget, is the characteristic shape of the large Shaft-House of the Anchoria-Leland mine seen against the sky at top of Gold Hill.

Description:
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.
graphic for visual presentation of text 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.
graphic for visual presentation of text 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.
graphic for visual presentation of text 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.

The right part of this image is so blurred it is impossible to get anything useful out of it. Overall it is not a very sharp photo when scanned in high resolution, but it is among the better ones.
graphic for visual presentation of text The date of this is after the sale of the Gold Coin Mine to the Granite company, as the ore house of the Gold Coin has Granite written on it, making this after 1905 if memory serve me right.
graphic for visual presentation of text One fun thing is that you can actually see a glimpse of the American Eagle Mine, seen about 2/9 in from left-hand side and about 1/6 down from top of image, against the sky. In addition, lots of mines are seen and it is easy to see why Victor is dubbed City of Mines!

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.

Description:
This view of Victor town is taking from east, looking west, sometimes after December 1905 as that month saw the sale of the Gold Coin Mine to the Granite Gold Mining Company, which in this photo is now marked as Granite Mine. The mine is seen about 1/5 in from right hand side, and about 1/3 down from the top.
graphic for visual presentation of text Further down from the Gold Coin is seen the tracks of the Short Line/High Line and the Florence & Cripple Creek, and the Golden Circle track is also seen. The Short Line is the left most, on a big fill after crossing the F. & C.C. track outside the view at right lower about 1/4 up from bottom. The yard of the Short Line is seen better in my postcard copy then in this bad print view. The Golden Circle track leaves the F. & C.C. at left of the text reading the title of this view, and is the part first seen under the title text at right hand side of this view.
graphic for visual presentation of text The group of buildings/houses inside the fence in the foreground right is the Stratton's Home when he was staying in the District after making his millions as per Mr. Spell in his book.
graphic for visual presentation of text Somewhere at left of center of the photo is the dump of the Spicer/Rexall mine seen, in my postcard view I can see it a little bit better but not that easy, appears to be a crib wall around it. It would be located just below a line between the Garfield School (the large structure with the tower about 1/4 in from left-hand side and 1/3 from top) and the Gold Coin mine so to speak, about 1/4 on that line towards the Gold Coin.

Description:
This large mine was once located near base of Guyot Hill in the outskirts of the town of Anaconda, with the F. & C.C. tracks passing below the mine (not seen) but with a siding/spur leading up to ore bins where you see 3 boxcars located beside the Shaft House in this image. The M.T. was also connected to this mine, making it dual gauge (3 rails track) just beside the mine structure.
graphic for visual presentation of text You can see the narrow-gauge F. & C.C. tracks disappearing behind the mine just below the roadbed of the M.T. heading towards Victor. This spur was in 1917 converted into standard gauge which allowed the M.T. access to the El Paso Mine on Beacon Hill.

Sadly, this view is not a good quality view, neither on this card or the other postcard I've seen used for from the source negative by O.E. Masters. No date is given with this view, and I can't tell if there are dual gauge tracks or not along the mine structure, but I see several boxcars on the M.T. siding opposite the mine so the view is at least while the railroad is still active in the District.
graphic for visual presentation of text There is a Franklin 1-cent Green Stamp on the backside, but no postmark, neither any writings on the card so no date help there either.

I never seen this view as a photograph, only as a printed image used for postcards and postcard folders, various crops from the source negative and various titles used. Also, various works been done to the print plates used to create the cards.
graphic for visual presentation of text At time of writing thins I know off 11 versions/editions from the source, where 3 is from postcard folders and rest is postcards, and ten of those has the El Paso Mine used in the title, which here on this card can be seen about sideways center and about 1/3 down from the top, with a growing dump down the slope of Beacon Hill.
graphic for visual presentation of text At left side, about 2/5 down from top, most of the surface Structures of the C.K. & N. Mine can be seen, while near bottom left the Henry Adney and Old Gold Mines can be seen. I often mix them together, but I think the Hendry Adney is the one to the left.
graphic for visual presentation of text I am not certain of the name of the mine seen in lower right, but I think it is the Lonaconing Mine. Neither have I names for the several other smaller mine operations seen spread around this scene, but I hope one day to learn all this and be able to understand the relations and names and all.
graphic for visual presentation of text Between the Henry Adney and the Old Gold mines there seems to be visible the tracks of the short-lived F. & C.C. switchback branch down Beacon Hill, built in 1904, which dates this view to be from between 1904 and 1906.

Description:
The mine in the foreground seems to be located the Red Bird claim, possible spilling over into the Yellow Bird, but it is not on the Admiral Dewey claim as that is a claim that is broken into tiny patches of ground in-between other claims as per a claim plat I've seen. I'm a little unsure which has the part the shaft stands on as while their parallel, reading the map and the image to tell for sure where this one shaft is, is a little bit hard but my feel is that this is located on Red Bird lode claim. But, if this is known as the Red Bird Mine, Yellow Bird Mine, or even as the Mariposa Mine, I can't tell. One of the houses behind the mine, inside the Short Line loop is marked with Mariposa Office on the roof, but my USGS Topo-map from around 1903 has the Mariposa Mine located quite a distance from her, outside the view at right, nearly 90-degree right. National Mining Tunnel and Land Company is reported to have had a large plant of machinery on the Red Bird claim with a value of $10,000. Hence, for now, November 2017, I continue to name and think of this mine as the Red Bird.
graphic for visual presentation of text The tracks just behind the mine in foreground right is the Short Line mainline into Cripple Creek, but it is also the High Line and Low Line tracks of the Electric Trolley System, at least till that bridge barely seen a piece of in lower right corner area – a bridge crossing over the M.T. tracks and then the High & Low lines split where the High Line goes left together with the Short Line mainline to climb Gold hill, while the Low Line goes right to go along Gold Hill, heading towards Victor along the hills and valleys sort of following the F. & C.C. and the M.T. tracks, cutting the hills here and there as it is higher up.
graphic for visual presentation of text If keeping in lower right quadrant, the F. & C.C. Depot is slightly above ¼ up from bottom and about 1/11 in from right-hand side. The Freight house is also seen, together with some of the industries along a side spur breaking of the mainline near left-hand side of this view and ending up just below the Depot where a string of boxcars can be seen.

Description:
This view of the East & south side of the Strong Mine is quite a good one to tell how it looked sometime in 1909 when T.J. Hileman took the photo which was the base for this postcard view presented here. Down left is the yard of the F. & C.C. railroad, with its dual gauge tracks connected with the M.T. running passed the Ore-House of the Strong Gold Mining Company. Also, the mainline of the Victor branch of the M.T. is shown entering the scene along the right-hand side, where there is shown most of the side-spur for delivering coal to the powerplant of the Strong Mine for their operations, seen here with a single M.T, boxcar (no. 211) parked on the trestle, while the mainline where passenger trains were running is seen this side of that trestle, dropping downgrade to reach the Depot not seen in this view due to being behind the Strong Mine Ore-house.
graphic for visual presentation of text The Ore-House also has an open-air Ore-Bin type of structure to the east, where Gondola & Hopper type of railroad cars was run under to collect dump materials to be used for railroad work I assume. Also shown is the big truss bridge coming out of the Strong Mine Ore-House, extending across the F. & C.C. yard unto another smaller bridge and taking it to a rock-house outside this view which delivered dump ore to Short Line cars to be used as ballast, fill-mass and similar along the lines, from what I have understood it as.
graphic for visual presentation of text Just left of the single boxcar at the Coal-room part of the Strong mine, out on the crib-wall part left of the M.T. mainline is seen a small stone structure which Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps for Victor 1908 (sheet 0) say is the Powder Thawing House.
graphic for visual presentation of text Just behind the Strong ore-house is the Ore-house and headframe of the Mary Cashen Mine seen, with dumps around it and some of their cribbing's is seen behind the big truss bridge coming out of the Strong Mine Ore-House.
graphic for visual presentation of text Up near the right-top-corner the dumps and Shaft House of the Ajax Mine is seen poking up into the sky, and about center left-right and about 1/5 down from top, there is the dump of the Nellie V. Mine with a smaller two-post Head Frame and a hoist house and shed together as a long structure from what I can gather in a high dpi scan of this view. This do not match what Sanborn 1908 say the Nellie V. mine was to look like, as that say it is a shaft house type of structure.
graphic for visual presentation of text I wonder if I see the Columbine Tunnel or if it is another one which is seen a distance to the left of the extension of Diamond Avenue up to the M.T. tracks in the higher dpi scans. Seen about 1/5 in from the left-hand side and 2/5 down from the top, a dump is there in addition to a tunnel portal and some sheds to the left of the adit opening.

This scene from Labor Day 1911 show a large crowd of people on the Intersection of West Diamond Avenue and North Fourth Street, where sort of a larger angled area exists, where a platform is set up for what the backside of this postcard said was a Drilling Contest with a Price of USD 1,000 could be won. Just above middle top/down and center right/left is the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad Depot structure scene in a good view, and the large crib-wall of the Mary Cashen mine is holding back lot of dump materials from that mine operation behind the depot and to the left.
graphic for visual presentation of text The Drilling Contest are still going on, as while the men on the platform looks down to the floor part, and a man kneels there, supporting himself with his left arm, another man is seen as a blurred figure holding some tool over his hand and about to drop it down, but on to what is a detail hiding behind the group of men on the platform, and even on a high dpi (2400dpi) scan of this scene, I can't pick out any particular from the platform happenings.
