There are eight, 8" x 9.75" linen backed photographs dated between 1922-1923. Each photo is identified in the bottom right corner, and show work being done by the James Steward & Company Contractors for the Gulf Refining Company at the Port Arthur Wharf. Port Arthur was incorporated as a city in 1898 and soon developed into a seaport. It eventually became the center of a large oil refinery network. The photos are in good condition.
