  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. Like a mighty torch! Exploding oil well on fire, makes awe-inspiring spectacle by night and by day."

    Texas, United States of America (USA).

    Oil spews out of a hole in the ground where the well workings have been blown away. Various shots of oil and fire. Men advance behind shields of corrugated iron towards the flames. The flames burst up once more than the men retreat.

    Night shots of the oil and flames going high into the air.
