This page has a total of 4 images, as of 24.09.2022 (21:39:17).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
This wonderful 1903 view from near top of Bull Hill is taken in Northwesterly direction and looks across Ironclad Hill where the Londonderry Mine can be seen about 1/3 up from bottom 2/5 in from left-hand side. In addition top part of Globe Hill is seen at about middle top/down left-hand side, with several mines there sort of visible, like what I think is the Plymouth Rock Mine with the Deerhorn or Gold(en) Crater mine and what I think is the Lady Stith Mine, and also some of the structures belonging to the Stratton company. In addition, about middle top/down and 2/5 in from right-hand side there is a string of Box cars along a spur on the Short Line at Hoosier Pass.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment.

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.

   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 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.
   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.
