  State Capitol Building and oil derrick
by mrclay2000
 
 

Along with agriculture and to some extent the railroad, Oklahoma's premier industry has been oil and gas over the last 100 years. As such, it's no surprise that an oil derrick has been operational on the capitol lawn pumping "black gold" up until a few years ago. In the 1920s and 30s, the area was littered with dozens of derricks! Today, the capitol dome and one last remnant of this important industry make a fitting politico-commercial pair.
