I am not 100% sure which mine is seen here in the foreground right, but I've decided (16.11.2021) that this is more likely to be the Kitty Lane Mine group then my thinking of this being part of the Thompson mine. This as I have a glass plate negative give me a shaft-house that fits better to the Thompson, making this better suited to be Kitty Lane looking at the bad view and my old 1903 topographic map, and a 1902 claims overview map where I see railroad lines drawn in. This sadly not great view here indicates an ore-bin just at the tail-end of the M.T. switchback going up the Elkton Mine coal bins. It can of course still be that I am wrong, but I think I am right now, and that this was part of the Kitty Lane operation on the Kittie Lane, and Sitting Bull Nos. 1 & 2 lodes, making up the Kitty Lane group.
   This view itself is more about/towards the Elkton Mine in the distance, one of the larger mines in the District, while in the foreground the ore bin and trestle from some mine – as mention, most likely the Kitty Lane Mine can be seen, a small mining operation.
   The massive trestle seen is part of the Midland Terminal trackage to get access to the coal bins of the power plant for the Elkton Mine, which also possible was served by the Short Line using the Low Line trolley tracks. A string of boxcars can be seen on that track off to the right of the trestle in the distance.Elkton Mine and the Kitty Lane Mine
