This straightened, enhanced and cropped view of my 1200dpi scan of the source postcard shows the surface operations of the Empire State Mine, or as it was known as from 1923; the Empire Lee Mine, located on the North Slope of Bull Hill, where the Golden Circle mainline ran below the mine, down between the dumps seen about middle top/down on the right-hand side of the image part. There was Extensive Underground connections between the Lee shaft of the Isabella and this mine, hence the name changes according to page 16 in a Book by Bill Munn titled 'A Guide to the Mines of the Cripple Creek District'.
   The Pikes Peak Range is in the background, and while snow covers lot of the ground, the valley below is the one I think of as Cameron Valley, where the crossing between the Short Line and the Midland Terminal tracks can be seen about 1/3 in from the left-hand and about 2/5 down from top of same image part. 
   The view is a winter view, quite a big Head-Frame is seen with a not so long Ore-house to the left of it, several smaller shed like structures are seen to the right of the Head-frame, and the photographer stood on the dump of another mine, possible Orphan Boy, as there is a shadow of a smaller Head-frame seen near lower right corner.A View At the Empire State, aka Empire Lee Mine, North Slope Bull Hill, Cameron Valley and Pikes Peak Range in Background

        General notes:
        * This appears to be a group name not linked to any lode claim on name, but a combination of several lode claims. To further confuse it got to be part of the Isabelle group of claims.
        graphic for visual presentation of text* In 1923, according to page 16 in a Bill Munn book, the Mine changed name to Empire Lee due to extensive underground connections with the Lee Shaft of the Isabella Group.
