Found these at
http://books.google.com/books?id=7Ah...age&q=&f=false

Go to the end of the book. Good history of oilfields prior to 1900

Thumbs up Re: OLD Oilfield pictures

Theres A LOT of good history in that book Paul! Thanks for the link
That has to be one of the earliest Reid advertisements. Notice there is no webbing in the flywheel. That book was published in 1895. Awesome!

There was also this early super early Bessemer advertisement! I think I'll make a T Shirt with this! I've made my self alot of T shirts with these old engine advertisements. If anyone has an old engine picture they would like on a T Shirt. Just save the picture to your computer then go to VistaPrint.com its cheap and easy.
