   I am very grateful for this gift I got from a lady in England, Anne Speight. She was researching her family when she found a little page I had about the Londonderry mine. Her great Grandfather - William Henry Pine - was one of the 3 miners losing their life in a fire in April 1898.
   I think this shaft house here is the one that got burned, as I've seen another view dated 20th August 1898, and that has a different look to it. Sad story but still a nice glimpse into the work people like Anne's great Grandfather did put into trying to make a good life for them self.Londonderry Shaft House - Pre Fire

   I don't know if William is in this view of the miners posing in the doorway into the pre-fire shaft house. This is the same shaft house as the other I got from Anne, and as with that former, I think this one here is the one that got burned. I base that on the fact I've seen another view dated 20th August 1898, and that has a different look to it.

A group of miners pose at the doorway on the south gable end of what I believe to be the new shaft house after the fire earlier in 1898 that burned the older structure of the Londonderry Mine. Located on Ironclad Hill, at Midway, near Cripple Creek (Teller County), Colorado. The men wear work clothes and a couple of them seem to joke about a little as they are moving about, messing up the sharpness/focus of that part of the image. Two women sit on the ground in front of two well-dressed men. A woman stands with her hand on her hip in the doorway of a building in the distance on the right. The building is made from wood planks, has a corrugated tin roof, a smoke stack, a coal shed on the left with a tank for possible water in front of that shed.
Outside the view to the right would a ore-house been located and also the balloon-loop of the Golden Circle at Vista Grande, also known as Midway as a Trolley stop on the High Line.London Derry Mine, Cripple Creek, Colo.

      graphic for visual presentation of text Map is boring, way to early for any railroad tracks to be shown, sadly, as the High Line crosses this claim with some sidings, and the Golden Circle has much of its Vista Grande loop track on this claim. There are three claims colored together, filed together, the Londonderry, the Fairview and the High Tide and as the Fairview has much overlap with the other two there might be some info that is typed down from wrong claim so to speak...
      graphic for visual presentation of text The Discovery Shaft is shown about 1/5 from the NW edge of the claim, which makes it very close to the Climax claim in the Amended map, which show most of the ground in that area lost to just other claims... There is also a second Shaft shown in SE part of the claim, which will more or less be on the start slope of Bull hill I would say. A third Shaft is shown inside the possible claim of Fairview, so not sure which claims that belongs to, but both those shafts is lost to other claims in the Amended map so why bother - the last shaft is also very close to the loop track of the Golden Circle when trying to compare with my 1902 claims overview map with railroads drawn in.
      graphic for visual presentation of text Up near the discovery shaft there is a Cut drawn in, again, hard to tell if it is on Londonderry or Fairview claims, and to add to the confusion, on the Amended map, the entry of the cut is reversed to the north side while on the first map it is shown on the south side... The Amended map also has a fourth Shaft drawn in here, northwest of the before mention cut, together with two more Shafts on the Fairway grounds.
