Description:
This is a view I Just had to Get!!! Various reason, like for instance, up on Victor Pass in the background is seen the still standing structures of the old Taylor & Brunton Sampler for instance... Sadly the camera-lens used has issued on the left and right hand sides where they are blurred and not very sharp, neither is the background sharp so details are not that easy to pick out.
graphic for visual presentation of text The town of Goldfield is seen in all its glory so to speak, from the church near right-hand side along what is known as Victor Avenue, to the dumps of the Golden Cycle mine on the left-hand side, and the huge structure making up the Jefferson School in foreground left, with its huge high and wide roof and massive chimneys or what those 4 tower-like parts poking up from the roof really was. Independence Avenue is seen running up the valley towards Victor Pass behind the school.
graphic for visual presentation of text Jefferson School was mention as torn down during the timeframe 1928-1929 in the booklet ''Gold Camp Indian Summer'', which would date this image to be taken some time before that, but exact when is an unknown.

This is one of those many 'I wish I knew more' type of cards, but alas, I have no info other then seller saying this is on a street in Goldfield and me agreeing as it do feels like Goldfield. There seems to be preparations for some sort of Parade going on, or more like gathering, as there are so many on that wagon with the 4 horses at front.

This is one Great Card I think! Do not know the occasion but people are gathering preparing for some form of a Parade here in front of the Roman Catholic Church in Goldfield, seen partly at Front Right. This are putting them on Goldfield's Victor Ave., between 9th & 10th Street, in the distance we see the City Hall with the High Line/Short Line grade seen nearly halfway down from top left corner just to the left. Quite much planked walkways visible in this view, love it!

Description:
This was one of those postcards I never would have imagined I would happen over, so that makes it a little bit of a treasure even if the scene is not that great and it is somewhat faded. Some research has made this to be looking up 9th Street in Goldfield, where there has come a layer of snow this day of June 17, 1912 and covered up everything! Of markings I've been able to find on this view I've seen a sign saying 'Coors Golden Hofbrau' on the left-hand side of the street, about 2/5 up from bottom, with another one further into the view, same side, saying 'A.W. Flanigan Real Estate' on the sign. On the right-hand side of the street, the structure closest to the photographer there is a big marking on top of sidewall saying 'Herman - One Price Clother', with a sign at street level saying, 'New Second-Hand Bought Goods Sold' while the post holding up that sign there is written the text 'Plumbing'

When I got a change to get hold of this view I just had to take the opportunity, came at a high cost but it is as dearly to me as I think it was to the couple Jessie & Lon Brockshire who is Posing here at the Goldfield Depot along the High Line/Short Line grade through Goldfield, Colorado.

Description:
This is a very artistic rendering with dramatic effect/exaggerations of the scenery around the town of Goldfield and should really have had a better title then the card maker chose as this is quite a distance from the town of Cripple Creek. In foreground right, the Short Line Loop in lower Goldfield is drawn in, with only part of the Golden Circle seen as there is a spur crossing under the before mentioning Short Line near lower left which here is just ending in Goldfield deep in the valley drawn, while it used to climb the hill seen on left side of this view. But, it is an artistic rendering, so I should not judge to hard.

Description:
This negative/photo being the base for this card was a popular view, as I've seen it by time of writing this (08.04.2018) a whopping 15 times, used for various postcards folders & postcards, using two different titles; ' The Center of the Great Mining District, Cripple Creek, Colo.' and ' Mines at Goldfield, Cripple Creek, Colo.'
graphic for visual presentation of text I assume I shall find more as time goes by, as for the postcards they really are only two types, this B&W card and a colored/painted one, and then various crop editions of those again, where there are from one to a few millimeters differences on either of the sides, and sometimes also at the bottom – the sky part is impossible to tell so I leave that one out .
graphic for visual presentation of text The view itself is of the town of Goldfield in the foreground, Independence town up the hill in the distance, town of Altman in sideways center against the sky in the distance top, and lots of mines scattered around on what is essential Bull Hill all over. Mines and rails!

Description:
This image is quite wonderful as it shows quite well the railroad trackage around the Golden Cycle Mine. Like for instance how the Short Line branch up to the Eagle Sampler curves around the mine, seen passing under the dump trestle about 1/3 in from right-hand side and 1/3 up from bottom. It also shows how the M.T. switchback coming down the hill on the left-hand side, almost comes to the same level as the Short Line grade, as it heads down into the ore house of the Golden Cycle. Also, the M.T. branch to the power plant and coal drop of the Golden Cycle Mine is seen, passing through a gate and a wooden fence - just lovely to watch. I also see the Powder House of the Golden Cycle at that gate.
graphic for visual presentation of text In distance right, upper part of Goldfield is seen, and behind the before mention dump trestle, partly hiding behind it, is the Gold Knob Mine structures and Crib-wall seen.
