(Fig. 29a) "Winter scene looking southwestward from a point approximately where it is proposed to sink the new two-compartment shaft of the Western Gilsonite and Elaterite Company. The fence running west from the clump of buffalo-berry bushes in the center of the photograph is the southern boundary of the Arrowchis Lease, and the point where this fence line leaves the picture at the extreme right is where the connection will be made with the power line of the Uinta Power and Light Company."
