Overview

Houston, Texas: A Photographic Portrait by Jim Olive

When the Lucas Gusher blew at Spindletop in 1901, Texas changed forever. By 1929, forty oil companies had offices in Houston and refineries along the Houston Ship Channel, safe from Gulf storms.The oil gushed for eighty years and transformed Houston into one of the richest cities in the world.Throughout the pages of this photographic portrait, the reader will find powerful images of this culturally vibrant city on the bayou, where history is now being made in the fields of medical research, higher education, space exploration and environmental sciences.
