  As this image is used in an December 1904 article it can't be younger then November, early December 1904, but I have lot of doubts it is that young, I think it is up to at least half/to a year older. But it is hard to tell, nothing in the view to date it from. Though, I have seen from a different source an image that is linked to this one, and which is said to be from 1903 and linked to a J.E. Stimson, which was a photographer of Cheyenne, Wyoming it seems. On that other view, the structure in the foreground on this one, is seen as under early construction and the two smokestacks seen poking out of the roof of the structure seen near center top is seen without a house around them. Hence, as this structure here seem to be still under construction it is possible they are from near same timeframe and possible also same photographer.
  The view itself is of a printed bad quality type showing the new and the old cyanide mills of the Cripple Creek Homestake Company on their Ironclad Hill property. The old smaller mill is seen on the left part of this view. I have a postcard showing two mills her as well, but on that the closest structure looks way different and I wonder if it was tore down, or just massive rebuilt as I have a hard time seeing anything alike except the location on the hill seems more or less the same.
  In the background top right is seen the original High Line I would think, as I can't make sense of this view and other similar views if I think of it as the new High Line coming from Hoosier Pass.200-Ton Mill and New 1,000-Ton Mill of C. C. Homestake Company
