In the mid, to late 1920s numerous wildcat discoveries were made in remote parts of the Permian Basin. Small “towns” quickly developed at the delivery point of equipment and supplies nearest these new oil fields. This “Boom Town” image is a composite of such a community and its exploration activities, circa 1926. The location of this “Boom Town” is looking south from the base of King Mountain in western Upton County, near the present town of McCamey.
