Dan Henthorn, in his 80s, seems to be reflecting on his past years spent working in the oilfields of Elk Fork, Tyler County, West Virginia. Dan was a regular exhibitor of model oil derricks and steam engines at the West Virginia Oil and Gas Festival. He was born 1902 and died in 1984.

Picture was supplied by his son, Dale Henthorn. Sent to us by Edward Grimsey, 969 Iron Bridge Road, Mount joy, Pennsylvania 17552.
