A panorama looking over the north end of Gold Hill in the 1920s. To the left is a mine dump that looks relatively recent. The early 1900s saw a resurgence in mining on the Comstock. The entire site of that dump is now a giant open pit. To the right is the highway heading up Greiners Bend to Virginia City. To the right of that is the V&T Railroad curving past the depot, heading between the Miner's Union Hall and the Liberty Fire House, and continuing up the hill towards Virginia City. On the far right is the Maynard House.
