While this photo has become some faded it still has info to tell us and I count myself lucky that I was able to get hold of this one, even if it was one of the more expensive ones sadly. Sadly, also it is not dated, but it is an early view from Squaw Gulch, possible around 1894 but not sure.
* The structure is the Sylvanite, or also later known as the Hartzell Mill; or even Hartsell Mill I've seen it named as. It would in its lifespan grow to be longer towards the left in this view, and they must have had its believes in this mill as it worked some years.
* In background right, about 1/3 up from bottom, and about 1/7 in from right-hand side, behind the dump seen there, is some darker shades, that is the Blue Bell Tunnel Mine, an early hopeful mine that never really become anything…

Title on Image:
Blue Bell Tunnel Squaw Gulch C.M.R.R.
Photographer [Date]:
Unknown
Description:
Not the most interesting view, as it is only three miners that pose with sledgehammers and mallets by a wheelbarrow at the entrance to the Blue Bell Mine in Squaw Gulch, just below Barry, later Anaconda, Colorado. There are no structures, nothing of particular interest other than to tell of the way many mines where, especially in the beginning. Simple hole into mother earth, either as a tunnel as here, or as a shaft into a vertical or incline hole in the ground. There is a couple of sacks of ore at bottom right though, wonder if they got much for that.

This view from an unmarked Stereoview is showing the town of Anaconda with the School House and part of the Hartzell Mill in the foreground left. In the background is Gold hill and some of its mines, while the town itself is located near the Anaconda mine. Anaconda mine is about 1/3 down from the top and about middle-of-view in the left/right direction. About halfway up on the left side is the Ore-house of the Blue Bell mine just above the school house cupola.

This photo is taken in Squaw Gulch, a little below what was known as Barry in early days and later Anaconda. It shows in foreground left the Ore-house of the promising Blue Bell Mine with its adit/tunnel opening about middle of page and a group of miners posing around it. Slightly better quality on the low-resolution image on the Cripple Creek Museum webpage.
The location of this mine was just a few meters further up the gulch from the Sylvanite [aka Hartzell] mill.
