Photograph of Shell Oil Nasa Well No. 11 in Long Beach, ca.1930. At center, several derricks stand tall, while a series of wooden structures is built into the base of the oilrig closest to the foreground. Across these structures to the right sits an automobile behind a wooden fence. At the rightmost corner, a portion of another derrick can be seen, with a tank and piping at its base. A cloud of smoke curls from smoke stacks in the leftmost corner. The distance is a veritable sea of derricks.; Photoprint reads: "Long Beach, Calif. Oil at 10,000 feet under the earth's surface is one of the geological secrets uncovered by the Shell Company's Nasa Well No. 11, the deepest hole in the world. Eight months have been required in sinking the shaft, which is in the rich Signal Hill field near Long Beach, and the downward drilling will be continued as long as it is possible mechanically. In the center of this picture is shown the derrick and hoisting machinery by means of which the "deepest hole in the world" was drilled".
