While not the best quality, I have seen way worse views before. Quite a nice view of one of the two Shaft Houses of the Pharmacist Mining Co. Think this is the newer, main shaft, a vertical shaft while the original seems to have been an incline type.
   Located north of the original shaft, and seen in a few views marked on the side, that is the left side on this view, as The Marie Mining Co. Or as it says on the 1900 Sanborn Fire Insurance map; The Marie Gold Mining Co. On the Sanborn of 1908 it is marked as Marie Mine, and as being closed. 
   This indicates this view to be dated to be from around 1898-1906, as it does not show up on the 1896 Sanborn map. I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grey-toned, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes for the moment.Pharmacist Mining Co.

   * Old Pharmacist Mine is seen at far left with a triangular peaked Cupola and a longish narrow structure as a Shaft House, said to be an Incline type of shaft. Quite an extensive dump spread out east of the structure. The Shed poking out towards the photographer is per Sanborn Fire Insurance map of 1900 (Sheet 14, Victor set) for the Blacksmith. The dump in foreground obscuring the west end of the shaft house is part of the Zenobia dump.
   * Beyond the Pharmacist, into the image just at right, is the Burns Mine with part of a head frame poking up from the roof. What is in the image is not fully fitting the 1900 Sanborn map, but that mine was not included in the 1896 maps and the 1908 edition shows a different look altogether.
   * A rectangular shaped structure and marked with a cross is seen further right, a church in Altman, also seen on the 1908 Sanborn map, marked as R.C. Church, not used by then.
   * The structure that was later to hold the Geo. McMillan Grocery Shop marked out in other photo's with an extension not seen in this photo is located at southwest end of the main-street of Altman, or far-right in this cropped view.
