Photograph of an aerial view of El Segundo Standard Oil Refining Company, in June 1933. The land is stripped of foliage in most areas, and a series of cylindrical tanks dots the entire spread, some sitting at varying distances from each other in the foreground, and others in a similar position in the distance. The company proper sits at center, a series of vessels and stacks and piping lined with several houses at left. Smaller tanks sit in this area, connected by pipes to the other equipment. Right of this sits a building several stories tall, surrounded by house-like structures. The rightmost area of the scene is composed of a few more cylindrical tanks, and several cemented ovals in the grass. In the distance, one can discern the silhouettes of several derricks in a populated area.
