This is one nicely closeup about 1895 photo type of the early Shaft house of the Delmonico Mine on west slope Bull Cliff or eastern Bull Hill, depending on how the area is, was, named. I know this as this image appears in an 1896 book, with views credited to Mr. Poley. Found on the Denver Public Library site (Call Number: P-944). I just worked over the image to create this view, straightened and cropped, colored and played around.
   I am pleased with the result, in background left I assume some of the homes linked to Altman is seen, and in the foreground of course the old but still somewhat size over it Shaft house of some operations on the Delmonico claim. I am certain this is the same Shaft house as appears on the Delmonico Plat Map at the more northern end of the lode claim.
   I did procure the colored version of this image. Source was grayish, or in common speech black & white. Used an online service and tweaked and worked with image to get what looks best to my eyes at the moment.BULL HILL. Delmonico Mine

      Plat map shows the Discovery Map about middle of claim and in the northern part there is a second Shaft with a Shaft House. Claim is located just east of Deadwood. The development consisted by 1906 of a shaft 600 feet deep, 300 feet of which had recently been completed, and three levels at 100-foot intervals. Development in the lower part of the mine was in progress in 1906.
