Executives Touring the Standard Oil Refineries, Ri
"From 1910-1920, the number of automobiles, trucks, tractors and aircraft increased significantly, generating enormous demand for gasoline and petroleum products, especially in the western U.S. where the population had increased 30%. With its plentiful crude oil, state-of-art equipment, prime location, and dedicated work force, the Richmond Refinery became an increasingly valuable asset of the Standard Oil Company. By 1915 the refinery employed 1,700 workers. " Bennett Hall / courtesy Richmond Public Library
