1896 Recommended Reading List

For those of you desiring to read through the entire "1896 Derrick Souvenir Book", congratulations.  But for the rest of us, here is a list of the most recommended sections for reading.  After you've covered these, then you may wish to go back a read the rest of the book.  Here I have highlighted some of the more interesting sections of the book, especially those sections that interested me as they not only highlight some of the early history of Oil City, but also provide information on the early men and businesses that were still in business when I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s.
