Due to the source being a print-type of postcard, and being less than half sized of a normal postcard, red-inked, the base quality of the view was limiting what I could get out of it, but this view from west side of the Wild Horse Shaft House is still a great one as it is a rare view, and one I hope to find as a photograph in good quality one day! I have a cropped edition of this view in another printed source also.
   Regarding the scene, there are three ore-cars at a dump that is growing and a fourth is standing alone further to the right. The Shaft House has a Horse painted on it together with the name 'Wild' above the horse drawing and 'Consolidated G. M. Co.' below the horse drawing – quite cool! The whole structure is a long narrow one, with the Electric Hoist House at the right-hand side and the Ore House at the left-hand side.
   Being this was used on a postcard stamped July 17, 1902, this pic must be from not later than early July 1902 as it takes time to prepare a postcard print batch with engraving an all. But it is to me impossible to date it further, all I can say is this scene fits the look drawn on a 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance map, making it possible also to be a late 1899 or 1900 photograph.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was red-toned, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes for the moment.West Side of the Wild Horse Mine on Bull Hill
