Standard Oil Company, Rural Indiana

Standard Oil was an American oil company founded by John D. Rockefeller in 1870. It was the largest oil refinery of its time. In 1911, Standard Oil was ruled a monopoly and broken up. Standard Oil was split into thirty-four companies, one of which was Standard Oil of Indiana (which later became Amoco).

My wife and I take frequent day road trips throughout Northeast Indiana, Southern Michigan, and Northwest Ohio. We are always on the lookout for photography opportunities. Recently, we came upon an old Standard Oil delivery truck rusting away along a rural Indiana highway.
