from Library of Congress Photo-stream courtesy of Flickr The below scene was photographed between 1941 and 1942; no location is given. I well may be wrong, but I think it might be somewhere in Oklahoma or Texas because of the rudeness of the construction of the houses and the likelihood that the smokestacks are part of an oil refinery location. In the middle distance there's what appears to be a covered causeway which seems to connect the "factories." Houses and Factories ca 1941-42 (a Title, "industrial facilities - houses" was devised by Library staff) I'm thinking "oil refinery", only because the only place I've seen multiple smokestacks like these is in Ashland, Kentucky, where Marathon Oil has a large refinery, SEEN HERE. If the Ashland refinery was being looked up at as in the unknown one above they'd look very similar. You can enter the site H E R E. There is archival data by the library, and notes, comments, and "tags" by other viewers. There is also a search function to find your own subjects. These are not recent pictures; actually the colored ones are from color slides, a medium which was very popular back in the 40's and beyond. There are also a lot of early B&W photos. If you find an image youd like to share: Because of the added notes and tags the midsized images are interactive and they cant be imaged from the URL. To image a favorite here at USMB youll need to click on the magnifying glass for all sizes and from the larger image right-click, and then from "properties" C&P the URL.
