Oil City, Pennsylvania, September 10, 1875. At 6 a.m., one of the receiving tanks was struck by lightning. Glass lantern slide, about 3.5 x 4 inches. I found this same image on a stereo card published by Frank Robbins of Oil City. Does this mean that Frank Robbins also took the photo, and that this was his glass slide? I have no clue. Also, blown up to its full 55M glory, this is just an especially beautiful picture. The tones and textures are fantastic. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
