The following images are from the 1896 Souvenir of The Oil City Derrick book.  The book is over 120 years old and the pages have turned brown and fragile.  As a result, the images are not perfect but, I hope that like me you feel very lucky that they still exist and are as good as they are. The images are presented in two ways, by date, when available, and by subject.  For those who aren’t familiar with Oil City’s layout, I have provided two orientation maps found below.
