Snapshots of the past

| October 2007

With thanks to Phillp Sparks of Irvine, Ky., we have two photos illustrating the heyday of oil drilling in Estill County, Ky. In the photo below, a crew is pictured standing on and around a Bessemer engine. The specific location of this scene is not known, but the image is from an old postcard.
