Due to this view appearing in an 1896 book, it predates any railroad lines in this particular area, later the High Line would pass near this mine, just not sure how close, doubtful it would have been visible even if it been built. Image itself shows an early type of mine, a small hoist house and an open air (not inside a structure) type of a little head frame built upon a scaffold of logs as a crib wall. The space between the logs was filled up with dump rock from the hole they dug, making a flat base to work on. Later, as seen here, they added a trestle to a second dump ground and hopefully later, an orehouse or ore-bin – but that is not seen here. The photo found on the DPL site has a little bit more view to the left.The Bogart Mine, on Bull Hill.

      General notes:
      Plat Map is boring. Way too early to show how the High Line crossed the claim in the east. There is only the Discovery Shaft shown on the original map, middle of the claim, while the Amended map also show how the Sheriff claim has taken ground away from this claim. Also another claim in the west has taken a small piece of ground. Still only one Shaft though, most likely same as I have seen an image of in a 1896 book..
