Blue Stocking Mine
This is a hidden text,
acting just like a spacer
type of text in order to
push the Entity info
down on the page. Sorry to have wasted your time/ear to listen to this, I was just trying to get a layout work like I wanted.
This page has a total of 2 images, as of 23.06.2022 (18:36:04).
Most Recent added/changed image is on top.
As this photo appears in a February/March 1896 publication, this dates the photo to no later than early 1896, but more likely to 1895, I doubt 1894 but can't see anything in the view to rule it out either...
   Why Mr. Harlan indicates Independence Mine No. 2 as Portland No. 2 I do not know, but this is at least the second image I've seen him do it on. Both are from around 1895/1896, so either that mine used to locally be known as that, or he just has his info crossed... Me think the latter. Other publications from this timeframe say that the structure is the Independence No. 2 Mine, including a Sanborn fire Insurance Map. The Portland No. 2 is further uphill from No. 1, in this view that would be outside the view at top right.
   The small mine in the foreground is operations on the Blue Stocking Mine, not sure which part of the claim as per info in Hills 1900 Manual this claim is partly owned by two companies, whereas the Portland Gold Mining Company is one of those. Same is the Black Diamond, the Scranton and the Anna Lee mines, all marked out in this view, all of them also became part of the great Portland Gold Mining company.
   About middle of image, top/down, the Midland Terminal roadbed of the mainline along Battle Mountain is seen, and in just a couple of years this scene will change very much as the dumps grows to immense dimensions.
   I did procure the colored version of this image, if that is what you see. 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.
