This page has a total of 2 images, as of 04.06.2021 (11:53:00).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
The Ore-chute seen poking out of the crib-wall on the right-hand side is part of the mining operations done by the Rexall Gold Mining Company, which is linked to the Spicer claim (Survey No. 8682), but same ground is crossed by another claim named Mt. Rosa claim (Survey No. 7407).
   While the small brick Church was the Swedish Lutheran Church according to the info on the Sanborn 1908 Victor Fire Insurance Map, found on Sheet 5, block 22. Located on the corner of West Portland Avenue and South Second Street, it also appears on the 1919 Sanborn Fire Insurance map, but not on the 1900. It seems to have occupied part of lot 15 & 16, with street number 203 along Portland Avenue. The structure to the left is Number 207 and is marked as a Dwelling on the Sanborn maps, making it most likely some form of an apartment building.

This view of Victor town is taking from east, looking west, sometimes after December 1905 as that month saw the sale of the Gold Coin Mine to the Granite Gold Mining Company, which in this photo is now marked as Granite Mine. The mine is seen about 1/5 in from right hand side, and about 1/3 down from the top.
Further down from the Gold Coin is seen the tracks of the Short Line/High Line and the Florence & Cripple Creek, and the Golden Circle track is also seen. The Short Line is the left most, on a big fill after crossing the F. & C.C. track outside the view at right lower about 1/4 up from bottom. The yard of the Short Line is seen better in my postcard copy then in this bad print view. The Golden Circle track leaves the F. & C.C. at left of the text reading the title of this view, and is the part first seen under the title text at right hand side of this view.
The group of buildings/houses inside the fence in the foreground right is the Stratton's Home when he was staying in the District after making his millions as per Mr. Spell in his book.
Somewhere at left of center of the photo is the dump of the Spicer/Rexall mine seen, in my postcard view I can see it a little bit better but not that easy, appears to be a crib wall around it. It would be located just below a line between the Garfield School (the large structure with the tower about 1/4 in from left-hand side and 1/3 from top) and the Gold Coin mine so to speak, about 1/4 on that line towards the Gold Coin.
