View Down 1st Street to East Side of Imperial Refinery

This is an undated picture from sometime in the early 1920s, when Sugarland Industries & Imperial began town improvements. You can see that 1st Street is in place, although it isn't paved. I can magnify the photo enough to see there is a sidewalk.

You can see the old Refinery Power Plant with its smoke stack, although the Sealy Mattress manufacturing plant is out of view to the left. (I've posted pictures of both in recent entries.) Also note that the water towers are painted blue - I assume the same blue that's in the Imperial logo.

(This is a very clear, high-res photo, so be sure to magnify it to full-detail. If your mouse pointer shows a plus while it's over the image, click again to enlarge it further.)
