This rather haunting illustration is from an Oil Industry Information Committee’s ad, 1949. It represents an isolated desert pumping station, a self-contained community with “homes, shops and recreation centers”.
It’s a strange image, because I really can’t tell if it was meant to invoke sympathy for the people living in these modern miniature communities, with “homes, shops and recreation centers”. And was this a good thing or a bad thing?
