Refinery photos

David Wiggs


I thought I had downloaded and saved all the photos that Delano had
taken but do not recall ANY showing refineries of any sort. Where
can I find them? Or any photos of refineries, especially 1950s era?

Yesterday I searched the Library of Congress photo site and found no
Texaco refinery or tank car pictures. Delano took a lot of shots of
Mid-Continent refineries, and DX tank cars are plentiful. The few
Texaco shots that came up show gas stations and the like.

One tank car is identified as Texaco, but it is actually a Conoco. It
is a wooden-framed car with a silver tank and billboard lettering
what apparently was caught in a flood or some other calamity. Nice

Kind regards,
