Horace S. Poley photographed this view around 1895 to be used in a book from that time, and it is a view of either the earliest or about the earliest edition of the Brodie Mill, located at bottom of Squaw Gulch where that valley almost meet the creek valley coming down from Cripple Creek, and where an early settlement named Mound City was located.
  This was a Cyanide Mill from the start, it had some setbacks, fires and so on, but the site was used for a mill operation quite some time but eventually the location outside the main transportation as all the railroads was further east, higher up, I guess that was also not helping this operation.
  Direction of this view is in an easterly direction, Rosebud hill in the background. I did procure the colored version of the image. Source was 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.The Brodie Gold Reduction Company's Work, Mound City, Cripple Creek.

    Reported in Mining & Scientific Press August 16, 1902 that on the 9th inst., the Brodie mill, in Squaw gulch, was destroyed by fire. The mill was leased three months ago by O. B.

Mr. Finn's loss will amount to about $4000, which was in material and ore in the building.
