There is a photograph a couple pages down in the document.

As far as the location goes, I submit this for consideration:

County Road 10

Leadville, CO 80461

39.164010, -106.319801

I can check next time I'm in the area and get a couple photographs, but it would be great if an editor could update the page with the other info.
