This stereograph features men shoveling dirt and rocks into troughs among piles of rocks and other debris of a gold mine. Wooden structures cover the troughs. A hillside with small buildings and trees are seen behind the men. The publisher's name is printed at either end of the images and the title of the images and the copyright are printed along the bottom right edge. The back of the stereograph identifies the location as Cripple Creek and provides some history of the area, the mine, and the gold mining industry.
