Collection Lang Collection
Object Name Print, Photographic
Scope & Content B&W photograph of snowy scene in storage tank yard with two 2-horse sleds/sleighs. "Standard Oil Co." is painted on the side of the nearer sled. A large tank is mounted on brickwork to the left and there is a small wood building to the right. A house and larger sled can be seen in the background. There is a device with gears in the foreground, possibly something used to pump the oil. The men in the photograph are dressed in thick overcoats and hats.

n.d. Presumably between 1870-1911 (dates Standard Oil was based in Ohio).
