Lippincott property on 1906 base map.

The base map is the Blackhawk 1:62,500 1906 quadrangle, 1906 edition. One thing that occurs to me is that the trail I followed around the west side of the hill was, in 1906, a road. Also notice the location of the road up into the northernmost tract. I'll have to look for that road when I try to get up into that area.
