A forest of oil derricks makes a ghostly backdrop for a conversation in Signal Hill, California, in 1941. The city is located north of Long Beach in Los Angeles County. The complex geology of the L.A. Basin caused massive amounts of oil to be trapped beneath the city, which fed a booming oil industry at the turn of the century. At their peak, the wells at Signal Hill led California oil production. Photograph by B. Anthony Stewart, National Geographic
