A picture of a 1923 oil rig

1923 era oil production in Stephens County, Texas.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A RIG LIKE THIS?
This is the actual Polaroid picture.
 1923 era oil rig, a color reproduction is available on the next page 17.

I took this photo in 1964 in Stephens County, Texas with Polaroid Camera.   
About 5 miles south west of Breckenridge.
Notice the Dog House, the Trouble Post, the Walking Beam and Bull Wheel.
The derrick is angle iron. Steel derricks came in around 1920.
M. Norwood, a Wichita Falls artist, copied it for me in 1967 as a color, canvas oil painting.
You can view that oil painting on the next page, if you like.It is one of my most prized possessions.
