OK who's up for placing this location?  Photo from the DPL, linked after the correct guess.

Oi, One post per person eh, no edits :) Ya still wrong, Doug.
Once the location is guessed by say township given the smalltime nature of the C&S then there needs to be a narrowing down to name of the building or milepost adjacent to or to a landmark feature very closeby.

OK - - - By process of elimination I am going to go with the east side of the Arkansas River somewhere in the Cloud City precincts of Leadville?
Neat picture. unusual picture. Love the comfort station over hanging the river and the interesting location of the spur tracks penetrating the building, one for ore and one for what looks to me like coal.

Chris you must be the master of  "where is it" --appreciate you challenge, but I'm a bit out of water on some of the C&S locations.  This will be interesting to see where it is!  Just for fun I do think that is the Arkansas River though.

No luck so far huh....If I told you this Mill will be partially rebuilt and supplied by a two-foot railway line as well would that help?

All my reference materials are in storage but it is further up the creek than the original stone mill/sampling works in the area where the Gilpin Tram came down to the grade and the C&S ended.

I know it wasn't on the Gilpin just trying to locate geographically. Hard to do with no photos or maps at hand.

Golden?

The water body looks too large to be Black Hawk.

My back up is Idaho Springs.

I am out of ideas -- I can only see the location in my mind's eye as I have no reference materials here. I believe it shows in the background of a photo looking up the creek but at 67.5 my mind is getting foggier!

This scene was not modelled by the great Harry Brunk.  

Any further goes at this ?

I can't tell... is that a settling pond in the background or is this near a confluence? Or is this in the bend of the waterway?

Derrell, yes this is a bend in the waterway and yes there is a confluence, but no on a settling pond.

And another clue is to a recent C&Sn3 Blog post being taken exactly opposite this Mill.

Idaho Springs Concentrate Sample

Well. Your photos do not fit Blackhawk to me. Doug's "recent" post (last Oct.) of the box cars at Idaho Srings pointed to Mr. Walker poking around a lot in Idaho Springs at DPL. I believe this cropping came from MCC-1256 (iirc). This is on Clear Creek near the confluence of Chicago Creek. Hidden behind the crest of the hill before us is the pond and dam which I think shows up in your second photo upper right. I also noted the ridge board on the roof of one of the buildings in this photo on a like building in yours. Several things were stumpers; RR spurs coming thru the buildings too much water in the photo for Black Hawk are two examples.

I think this is the Idaho Springs Concentrate and Sample works.
