Item Description: [N.p., perhaps Pennsylvania. ca. 1890-1900]., 1900. Silver gelatin photograph, 15 3/4 x 19 1/2 inches. Mounted to backing board and framed to an overall size of 20 1/2 x 25 inches. Slight silvering of part of the image, light edge wear, minor chipping to frame. A very good image. A fascinating image featuring eleven men standing in front of an oil rig, complete from engine house to the oil derrick, the latter extending beyond the frame of the picture. Most of the men are fairly well dressed, and perhaps picture the management of the rig or the oil company that owns the rig. Among the better-dressed subjects is a young boy perhaps in his early teenage years. Two of the men are dressed in overalls, and are likely the roughnecks for this particular rig. A rare large photograph capturing the early days of the oil business in America. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 49847
