Description: This is the Wheel house of the Gold Coin Mine- in beautiful downtown Victor, CO.  If the Steam Punk folks miss this, then they really blew their trip. These 12’ diameter “pulleys” dropped and lifted their cargo on a flat cable to  almost one-mile deep. This is truly: Victorian “High-Tech”. You can see the Gold Coin Club at extreme frame right of the main Pan.
