Re: image of a bulk oil dealership

The second photo clearly indicates that it is a pier in Portland, OR.  To me, the large tanks look like so many other "tank farms" (terminals) where refined petroleum products were brought in by boat, and sent out in tank cars. 

The trucks on the tank car (early Andrews?) and the assortment of parked vehicles suggest a date of 1930 or thereabouts (IMO).
