Description
A panoramic view of the Kettleman Hills oil field in Kings County. There is an oil rig on the left which belongs to Powell-Stockton Investment Co. The derrick has a few sheds nearby, and two circular storage tanks on the hill just beyond it. A man in a dark suit stands on a slope between the camera and the derrick. The surrounding land is dry and hilly, with only low scrub growing.
Possibly the same oil rig as in photCL 470 (215)?
