Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
While not the best quality, I have seen way worse views before. Quite a nice view of the Shaft House of the Blue Bird Mining Co. I do not know if this is Shaft 1 or Shaft 2, as I've seen mention of at least two shafts, but I assume this is of the main shaft, and I also assume this is at the location of the later views if this mine with a much larger structure base, and railroad connection. I found this drawn on the 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance map only, by the time the 1908 map came around the structures has changed so much I can't tell if it is at same location, some has been reused or anything, they are too different to tell for sure. This indicates this view to be from around 1898-1906, as it does not show up on the 1896 Sanborn map.
   View is a look at the Blue Bird Shaft House and Ore House combination on Bull Hill. This is from before the mine got connected to the High Line/Short Line Railroad as this is looking at the east side of the structures, while the railroad spur was connecting to the west side, but also had a spur on a the east side, both coming up the hill from the north side.

I am pretty certain this is on the former main road between Victor (behind and to the right) & Cripple Creek (into image towards left) where it went over the hills and valleys at a lower elevation then the railroads. I further believe this is as the road turn down into Eclipse Gulch, and that the valley up on the right-hand side is the Eclipse Gulch.
* The dump seen about 1/3 down from the top sticking into the view from right-hand edge would be the huge dump left after the Economic Mill burned down, at least that is what I think the dump is.
* Near the same edge, against the sky, the Blue Bird Mine can be seen as a darker spot, while the American Eagle is almost faded into the sky further to the left, about 1/4 in from right-hand side.
* The Shaft House of the old Bostwick Mine can be seen about 1/3 down from top and about 2/7 in from left-hand side.
