This view looks at the Elkton Mine in the distance, one of the larger mines in the District, while in the foreground the ore bin and trestle from possible the Thompson Mine can be seen, a small mining operation.

The massive trestle seen is part of the Midland Terminal trackage to get access to the coal bins of the power plant for the Elkton Mine, which also possible was served by the Short Line using the Low Line trolley tracks. A string of boxcars can be seen on that track off to the right of the trestle in the distance.
