Crew operate Anglo-Iranian Oil Company facility at Abadan, Iran. Under the watchful eye of a supervisor, Iranian petroleum workers labor together in teams of several men each, to manipulate valves on a network of large pipes running close to the ground, at the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company facility in Abadan, Iran. To obtain better spacing and turning leverage, the workers employ shaped steel rods inserted into the valve wheels. A single worker closes a valve, inside a building. Another worker looks at a meter amongst a group of such devices, in the building. Two workes close a valve, as a supervisor watches. Several men walk across network of pipes and manipulate control valves outdoors. View of building with "Gas Oil Pump House" written on it in English and Persian.
