c.1930’s photographic album containing 153 photographs showing heavy oil pipeline construction through dense jungles of what I believe to somewhere in the South America…perhaps Venezuela. There are few photos that rightfully identify where this American engineer crew was working. There is a photograph of the Hotel Astoria and another one of the Bayer Farm Products factory. The photographs of the massive pipeline being laid illustrate the colossal engineering marvel that is being accomplished. The album obviously belonged to one of the contractors/engineers. There are other interesting snapshots that include a horse drawn funeral Herse riding through the town. I do not see any automobiles by the locals only those that were brought over by the Americans. What you see is some fine raw photographs taken in the jungle under adverse conditions of this tremendous project. I believe with further research one could identify the country, project and crew.
