US Oil Industry 1901

A section of the Spindletop Field in Beaumont, Texas, circa 1901 when wells were drilled so close together above the huge underground pool that a man could walk a mile stepping from one derrick floor to another. Discovery of oil in such vast quantity came at an auspicious time for Henry Ford, who was just launching his third automobile company. (AP Photo)
