Free Photo: Pipeline Valve Controls

Description: America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. Image of a pipeline valve control, 1944. A large pipeline valve controls a pipe leading from storage tanks on shore to fuel tanks of a U.S. merchant ship. This oil dock is in a U.S. Atlantic coast seaport at which oil in large quantities is continually being transhipped for war purposes. The equipment belongs to on the the principal U.S. oil companies working at peak capacity to supply the Navy's mechanized equipment and warplanes of the United Nations. The amount of gasoline needed alone for the 180,000 planes manufactured by the U.S. since December 7, 1941 is indicated by the fact that to train one flyer pilot requires 12,500 gallons of gasoline, enough to last the average U.S. civilian motorist a lifetime. Suggest a better description.
