September 3, 1928. H. F. Wilcox Oil & Gas Company, Pampa, Texas, Plant No. 5. Old panoramic photo obtained from the daughter of an employee at that plant. The photo had been badly damaged in a fire so she had carefully mounted it to a wooden plaque. Have tried to find the photographer, E. J. Banks, Wichita, KS, with no luck.
