This is a Colored, Scaled, Cropped view of a CHS photo I years ago found at the DPL site as Call Number CHS-B335 {but at time of writing this, that number leads to nothing at the DPL site when checking Apr. 2024, still, the image used as Courtesy of the Colorado Historical Society].
   This is a view of the large Rosebud Mill, looking passed the settlement known as Mound City, up the Squaw Gulch valley from the valley where the creek named Cripple Creek is running. Taken December 19, 1893 by photographer Harry H. Buckwalter the source said.
   The full image this crop is from has appeared several places, I seen it years ago at the Cripple Creek District Museum webpage as id 99-68, also no longer findable when checking in April 2024. It also appears in the 2002 book by Allan C. Lewis on page 74, whereas he has mistaken it to be the Brodie Mill. He did the same mistake on page 73 in same book, where there is a view showing the Rosebud Mill under construction, with Mound City spread out in the foreground.
   This mill, the Rosebud, was also known as the French Mill, as it was at owned by a French Syndicate, who also owned the Deerhorn mine on top of Globe Hill at one time. Mill was a very large Stamp Mill, I seen it referenced as both having 50 and 60-stamps, and it have at least grown two times as there is an earlier view in a 1895/1896 book where the upper part was there, so this is the latest version of the mill I presume before it burned down late in July 1894, never to come back again.
   I did procure the colored version of this image as I think it is nicer. Source is gray-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.Rosebud Mill with in Mound City Structures in Foreground
