A panorama looking east over Gold Hill in the 1920s. In the center of the frame 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. To the left is a mine dump that looks relatively recent. The early 1900s saw a resurgence in mining on the Comstock. The site of that dump is now a giant open pit. To the right of the railroad is the remnants of downtown Gold Hill, including the Maynard House, prominent in white.
