Caption

Artwork of an oil well in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1865. It has been capped by the tower at left, and barrels of oil are being transported away by river. Edwin L. Drake drilled the first oil well in the USA, in Pennsylvania in 1859, sparking an oil rush. It was about 1865 that the first long-distance pipelines were built. They would eventually replace river transportation.
