Driller Jack Clark (white shirt) and Crew east Texas 1930s. Long before the gas flows from the pump to the car the process of drilling for it has to start. Men made of steel willing to tackle a dangerous job worked rigs all over Texas looking to hit that gusher. Very little regard to safety was considered in the drilling effort. These images represent a slice of the roughneck’s life on the early rigs of Texas…. Sometimes it took more than a college degree to get the job done.
