This page has a total of 2 images, as of 04.06.2021 (11:53:00).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
Sadly, being from a printed source this view is not very sharp/clear at all, but it does give an indication to how it must have looked back when this image was made sometimes before summer 1905 as it does appear in a Blue Book issue of August 1905, dating it to at least a month or two before that issue went to printing. 
   The view itself is of a bunch of tourists coming out the Cripple Creek & Gold Hill Tunnel, going into Gold Hill to at least the Bonanza King mine, from just behind the Trolley Barn in Cripple Creek. Located along the Short Line, below the Midland Terminal tracks. I am not sure how the mine tracks crossed the Short Line tracks on its way to its dump as they did work from this tunnel as well, not only hauling tourist, but I think they did it with a regular crossing. The Trolley barn would have been to the left in this view, possible part of it is the larger structure seen on far left, not sure.
   Up towards top right is seen a string of houses, while the M.T. mainline is seen about 1/4 down from the top, with a spur down to the lower level of the Cripple Creek Sampler which was outside the view towards the right if the photographer had turned about 90degree to the right.

Sadly, not the sharpest view, background at top is quite blurred, same seems all the other sides as well. Paper quality is not the greatest, it is a small sized image of just 84x54mm so it never scans very well, but still, it helps give the view many tourists coming on the Short Line would have seen, as this operation here is just on the backside of the Trolley Barn in Cripple Creek, below the Midland Terminal tracks. I am not sure how the mine tracks crossed the Short Line tracks on its way to its dump as they did work from this tunnel as well, not only hauling tourist. The Trolley barn would have been to the left in this view BTW.
