    Description

    Christy Oil Co., Ltd., Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Black-Red, 1914. This stock is a larger than normal in format. Someone took the initiative to design a large vignette that incorporates a portrait of Edwin Laurentine Drake, and an illustration entitled "The First Oil Well", both of which are in the sky area of a nice oil company scene. Drake was the oil pioneer who, in 1859, struck oil at a depth of 69 feet. This was the first time petroleum was tapped at its source and the first proof of oil reservoirs within the earth's surface.
