Photograph of an exterior view of a modern refinery for oil, the third Petroleum refinery, ca.1940. Interweaving pipes lie across the refinery with tall, cylindrical towers shining above them. Each cylinder has a ladder and guard rails attached to the sides which lead to a small platform on top. Beyond the towers, short, long building lie across the background with a large, bare field extending into the distance behind them.
