An interesting little book about oil
written in ca. 1860. It is mostly written about the Pennsylvania and
other American oil discoveries. However there is a section on other oil
discoveries including Canada West. This would include Oil Springs
Ontario. I have included here the section on other sites. Apparently at
the time the Canadian Oil had a foul odour.
All of these pics and more are from my own collection and am always looking for pre 1920s Petrolia pics of anything to buy or borrow for copying. If you have pictures that I can borrow I only need a few minutes to scan them.
