Description
Photograph of an exterior view of the Shell Oil Company, showing a painter at work, ca.1940. The man in coveralls and a lightly-colored hat slips on a glove at center while facing the pipes on the right. The freshly-painted pipes are lightly-colored with a small portion to the right of the man which is still darkly-colored. The pipes extend around several tall, thick cylinders into a knot of intersecting pipes which continue into the background.
