The Dillon Mine Shaft House is marked as part of the Granite Gold Mining Company in this cropped view of a postcard, enhanced and sadly not very sharp but it was after all only seen as a small part of the upper left quadrant of said postcard, taken on December 6, 1913 after the snow storm covering the District with lot of snow. While not a sharp view it still is one of the best views I have of this shaft house, and is a good companion to a stereoview from nearly the opposite direction.How Fraziers Delivered Groceries. Dec., 6, 1913. Victor Colo.

      General notes:
      Map is boring. Claim is in two pieces, one north and one south, divided by the Black Diamond claim it appears. The Discovery Shaft is found in the southern part, about 6/23 north of the southern border in the claims full length. There is a second Shaft short distance south of this, marked with a Drift in west direction. Further southwest, all the way down into the corner area, almost at the marked Corner Number 2, there is a third Shaft marked out. Northeast of the discovery shaft, up in a point in northeast corner of the southern part of the claim, just before the ground marked as Black Diamond, there is a fourth Shaft marked and a fifth Shaft inside lost ground is also shown. On the northern part there is a Cut and a Tunnel going in easterly direction, ground that is crossed by two other claims sharing that area, namely the Amazette and the Monument claims.
      graphic for visual presentation of text The Amended map shows more lost ground. The tunnel in north is no longer on the W.C. Dillon claim but seems to be marked as part of the Amazette claim when checking the Amazette map. There is lot of Red Ink lines and a Red Ink note in lower right corner, Dated February 19, 1897 talks about how by metes and bounds the conflict between Dillon and Monument claims are shown, where the Dillon has parts excluded, shown in Red Ink, and this is same area as that tunnel in the north is located in...
