Description:
This sadly badly printed type of postcard is interesting due to several factors, for instance it is based on a great shot of Altman Town and street layout, and the mines around it.
graphic for visual presentation of text * Shaft house of the Pharmacist Mine, also known as the Marie Mining Co., is seen near lower left corner.
graphic for visual presentation of text * Just passed the upper portion of the Shaft House of the Pharmacist is the location of the Burns Mine, the Shaft House is hard to be picked out, even on my 600dpi scan, but is located just below the center top/down of the image part, and just left of the sideway center of the image part.
graphic for visual presentation of text * The Pinto Mine is harder to pick out due to the printed quality of this card, but it is located about 1/3 in from left-hand side of the image part, and just above the top/down centerline.

Description:
This postcard, published my W.A. Loper of Cripple Creek, is of the type 'Private Mailing Card', and shows on part of the front side a view towards the town of Altman as it looked August 19, 1900 when the photographer Baldwin took the base image this postcard is made from.
graphic for visual presentation of text While the quality of the image part of card is not much too happy about, I have the same base image in another version and from that I can say that the Old Pharmacist Mine is seen at far left, about 1/4 up on the image part of the card, shown with a triangular peaked Cupola. Other mines are also visible further to the right, but this card and its quality really don't give any useful view of any.
