I do not know the source of the photographer's name, so it might be a wrong link I made at one time, but for time being I let him stay linked to this image so to speak! The view is a nice one of the Portland Mines, No.1 (Burns) Shaft in foreground and the No. 2 Shaft in the background more right. Between them is the old Shaft House of the Scranton, where the text 'No.2' is written. Behind that shaft-house and the cribbing there is a spur belonging to the Short Line terminating at the Ajax mine way outside the view at left.Portland Mine. Portland No. 2

The postcard this came from has a date of January 25, 1939 written by hand on the backside with a name that appears to say Lester Ropes Jr. below it, but other than that, dating this view is not that easy I feel. This is the Portland No. 2 Mine/Shaft, with huge crib-wall below holding back massive dumps, I also see several structures further down the slope of Battle Mountain. Sadly, the card is not the sharpest I've seen, and the contrast against the sky is not the best for smaller details, it scanned OK but not great.
I think there is a railroad line still along the crib-wall about center of image top/down, Short Line used to have a side-spur here, but I think it was kept for use by M.T when Short Line got abandon. I also wonder if there is a railroad in the near foreground, about 1/5 up from bottom of this view, it feels like it.Portland No. 2 Mine; Cropped From #C-31; Portland Mines Victor Colo.

        General notes:
        In June 1900 it was written in Hill's Manual that Shaft No. 2 is now being sunk on the Captain lode -> but when I look at an official 1903 Portland Annual Map and compare against BLM Plat Maps I see the Shaft itself to be on the White House lode. Structures spreads out, including unto the Captain and other lodes, very hard to keep track of, and not sure how important it really is either...
