Crawford County, Pennsylvania
I'm going back to my working class roots for this one. I am, after all, a former member of the Laborers and United Mine Workers unions. This is a 19th century albumen print taken in Crawford County, Pennsylvania. Crawford County is the home of Titusville, and the first commercial oil well in the United States. The mechanism seen right at the left edge of the photo and the bar in front, are probably from an oil well. Written on the back, "JOHN W. WRIGHT ON LEFT."
