View is a negative type of Photo taken by a camera of an older type of Photograph, with not the best quality film so it is rather grainy sadly. Cropped from a view of the Trolley car named Grace climbing Gold Hill high above Poverty Gulch, along the original steep High Line grade, part of the roof and front trolley pole is seen in lower right-hand corner poking into the image towards left.
* The Abe Lincoln is seen center with its Shaft House and Power Plant and shed all attached together, while the Ore-House is seen towards lower right-hand corner.
* Poverty gulch houses is seen on the right-hand side, and the eastern leg of the M.T. Wye is seen about middle top, where also part of the spur up to the Midland Sampler is seen.Cropped View of the Abe Lincoln Structures, From a Photo Showing Cripple Creek District Railway Trolley No. 2 - Grace - Climbing Gold Hill High Above Poverty Gulch

    General notes:
    Map is interesting for not only do it fill in more of the lower part of Poverty Gulch in terms of structures and so on, but it also shows a shaft house and a couple of other shafts including the Discovery shaft.
    graphic for visual presentation of text It also shows several cabins, the gulch is marked out and it shows two roads, one on each side of the gulch at some part of the area. There are also a trail marked in at the lower part, pretty cool!
