Copy of a 1905 post card of the Glenn Pool Oil field. The wooden derricks appear to reflect on a lake of water. The lake is actually oil. Some of the gushers of Glenn Pool took place prior to building of storage tanks so the oil was initially collected as depicted in the photo.
Preservation and archiving of this significant Tulsa treasure of photographs and artifacts was made possible through the Tulsa City-County Library and the Tulsa Historical Society, and the generosity of Tulsa World/Lorton Family, Chester Cadieux, the Rotary Club of Tulsa, and many other community-minded corporations, institutions, and individuals.
