Patricia Harper Patterson received this photo from a friend (Mart) whose father (Leon "Pancho" Anderson) once worked here with her father (Clyde Harper, Sr.) in the 1940's. Pancho moved away, but Clyde was a lifelong WC resident who worked at Texas Pipeline until its office relocated to Bellaire in Houston at the end of the 40's. One of the other guys could be Clyde.
"I found a photo (below) from my childhood in W. Columbia,Texas. It is of the old Texas Pipe Line station where my dad worked in the early 1940's.The photo could have been him (the guy in the white shirt looks a lot like him) ...as well as a kid (possibly yours truly) with a hat on. Anyway, that's my fantasy." ~by John Martin Anderson (born 1942)
