This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer

push the Entity info
down on the page. Sorry to have wasted your time/ear to listen to this, I was just trying to get a layout work like I wanted.
This page has a total of 2 images, as of 08.04.2024 (15:14:34).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
The Date of 1934 comes from the backside of this image, where it been handwritten together with pieces of text as this came from a Newspaper Archive, mention Sunday Section and what I think say 3 columns, no Newspaper name mention.
   This view towards the Vindicator Mine operations, on eastern part of Bull Hill, has some of the still existing Midland Terminal tracks in the foreground, which at one time in the past might been part of either the High Line Trolley operations of the Electric Division of the Short Line, or even possible the narrow gauge Golden Circle operation, as this view is from near the Last Dollar mine, just can't tell exactly where.
   The Vindicator Mine dominates with its huge dumps the more background part of this image, with a huge string of boxcars in the Bull Hill Yards of the M.T. making up the background scene behind the more top part of the headframe of the Vindicator, and of course the mountains in the horizon background.
   About 1/3 up from bottom and about 3/7 in from right-hand side, there is a large Ore-bin or an Ore-house, that might have been part of the Longfellow Operations, where there is also a smaller headframe this side of that bin/house visible not too far away. Across the tracks seen curving away toward right is where the former Independence Depot along M.T. was located.

Sadly, this view towards the Vindicator Mine with the Independence Town on the left-hand side is a blurred and bad quality one, both due to the small size of just 84x54mm and the paper used, but also as the right-hand side is so blurred it is impossible to tell what is in that part! I am not sure where the view is taken from, but it will be nearby the Last Dollar mine I think, near where Bull Hill changes over to be part of Battle Mountain I assume.
* The Railroad scene in lower right quadrangle is the Midland Terminal mainline and the spur down towards Golden Cycle mine outside the view at right. Independence Depot is seen on right-hand side of the track going under the steel girder bridge just beyond the depot with the huge dumps of the operations around the Vindicator and its many shafts and properties further into the view.
* Vindicator No. 1 Mine/Shaft is seen about middle of the view, with its 3-smokestacks spewing smoke into the sky with the Lillie Shaft House to its right. Lots of dumps around those mines.
* Vindicator No. 2 Mine/Shaft is seen at the left-hand edge, about middle top/down, with the town of Independence following the hillside up from the M.T. tracks in the foreground of the mine structures.
* The Longfellow Mine is just this side of lower Independence just above the M.T. tracks, about 1/4 in from left-hand side and about 2/5 up from bottom, where there is a dump and what appears to be a large Head-Frame, but sadly the quality of this view is so bad I can't get a good look of it.
