Being from a magazine the quality is sadly not very good so any details been lost to eternity, but as an inspiration for a model this view is quite great! I also for the time being struggle with identifying which shaft on the Gold Sovereign Mine this is from, as I have never seen a map telling me which named shaft was where, I can only assume this is either a shaft down to the Tunnel which seems to be first linked to the Gold Sovereign as per some info about that tunnel talking about a shaft being built, or possible it is the Jackson Shaft also located on the gold Sovereign, or possible an unnamed shaft, I really can't tell. Neither can I say if this is before or after the fire that took down this shaft for a time being.
What I can tell is that in the background about 1/5 in from left-hand side against the sky is seen the Joe Dandy mine with its easy to recognize Shaft/Orehouse. It is on Raven Hill; Gold Sovereign is on Bull Hill.A View at the Head Frame and Ore House of the Gold Sovereign Mine With Group of Miners Posing on the Dump Bridge.

          General notes:
          The USGS 1906 Geology book indicates on page 367-368 that the mine was producing from two localities, and that this shaft, as with the tunnel and at least another shaft (known as the Lovett shaft), was working what was known as the Lovett vein.
          graphic for visual presentation of textSome other pieces of info from here and there in terms of a leasing company known as the "Cripple Creek and Gold Temple Company" working the Jackson shaft, and in one of those reports it is said they work the main shaft, gives this a strong possibility this is the most seen shaft thought of when it comes to the Gold Sovereign mine.
