Union Oil Tanks

 

 

On the west side of Cedros across from the Carpenter homes were large storage tanks for the Standard Oil Company and the Union Oil Company.  The Union Oil storage tanks were south of Standard Oil and were managed by caretaker Harry Brown, who had a house right next to the tanks.
