This somewhat enhanced view at the exposed Huge Head-Frame/Gallows-Frame of the old Stratton Independence Mine on Battle Mountain, outskirts of Victor, Colorado, show quite well how Huge the whole structure was! Dating this view is hard, I think it is from around 1940, but I do not know. There is a car parked below this mine structure, and that seems to have a License-plate of 43-660 but I can't tell what else it might have written above the numbers, so I can't date the image from that either…
   The whole structure is quite massive, and all in wood it appears! Hard to imagine all this at one time enclosed in a massive Shaft-house type of structure, as I assume this is as it was built inside the structure back in the days. The left most parts, with the various bins I do think is more recent then the headframe itself, but I dare not say anything as this is beyond my knowledge.View at the Independence Huge Open Head Frame with a Car Parked Below, About 1940's
