The second of a three-part panorama of Virginia City. This part looks west from the Combination Shaft, towards central Virginia City. At the far left you can see the Virginia and Truckee roundhouse. Further to the right a few tailing piles are actively being built up, and in the background you can see the Fourth Ward School and the business and homes of downtown.
