[LeTourneau Industries]

Description: Photograph of the LeTourneau Industries oil rig building facility near Vicksburg, Mississippi, which began operation in 1944. The photograph shows an aerial view of the facility.

The first off-shore drilling rig ever created was designed and built by Robert G. LeTourneau without any formal drawings or plans.
