• I'm wondering if this might not be in the field north west of Osceola #1 & #2. If you follow the route of Bush Street west from Church Street you will come across a large sink" which has evidence of fencing around it at some time. It's to the south of the Mineral Range Line and Mine Street and lines up well in this picture with C & H workings in the background center and right."

• I wonder if this is a mine collapse, I can't think of any gully like this anywhere along where the shafts used to be. It almost looks like a cave in the left bottom portion of the photo

• This photo is reversed. I have a stereoview of this same scene at a slightly different angle. The small shaft in the foreground is probably Hecla #11, the next in line looks to be the double shaft #9 and 10.The double shaft #9 and 10 was very close to C&H #13 on the Osceola lode, which in later years when reopened in the late 1950's was called Osceola #13. In this photo as is, Mine St would be to the left of the shafthouse and the old Mineral Range would be to the south.
