This postcard view of the massive Colorado-Philadelphia Mill, and the Standard Mill helps give the impression on how huge these mills can be, laying in the outskirts to the west of Colorado City, with what I believe is the mainline of the Colorado Midland seen along the bottom edge.
   If I am correct the structures to the right are part of the Standard Mill, while the ones furthest away, left side of the card, those are the structures of the Colorado-Philadelphia Mill.Reduction Works, Colorado City, Colo.

          General notes:
          In 1901 Tutt, Penrose and MacNeill expanded the scope of the venture Colorado-Philadelphia Reduction Company, by bringing in New York investors to form a mill trust named the United States Reduction and Refining Company, which was capitalized at $13 million. United States Reduction sought to monopolize the milling of Cripple Creek ore by acquiring mills in Florence and Canon City as well. United States Reduction also built a second Colorado City mill, the Standard. The Standard Mill was about a quarter mile south of the Colorado-Philadelphia, and like the Colorado-Philadelphia, it was at the base of the hogbacks. Within a few years, Tutt, Penrose and MacNeill sold their mills to the Guggenheim family.
