An oilfield at Bustenari

Bringing to the surface the riches that lie under romanian soil.
"Next to wheat and corn that flourish on her fertile plains, Rumania's greatest source of wealth is petroleum, which is found in Moldavia, east of the Carpathians, and in Wallachia, south of the Transylvanian Alps. In this photograph we see some of the derricks erected over the wells at Bustenari in Wallachia. The oil is conveyed through a huge pipe to Constanza, a port on a Black Sea where there are great refineries, and from there it is shipped to other lands. With its oil-sodden ground and its derricks, a petroleum field is very ugly"
