    Airplane belonging to Texaco Oil Company. The 14-passenger plane was used to fly passengers between the Texaco Airport and Port Arthur in the 1930's. Accompanying information states that the plane crashed in the late 30's, killing five men, including the pilot and oil company manager.

  24. I know I'm 5 days late with these pics, but it was still a memorable date from "Days Gone By", 60 years ago, the beginning of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

    My guess is that he's lapping/polishing a port or valve, though the proximity of the transmission there confuses me.
