Abstract

"North by East" piece on the South Portland oil tank farm, which came into being during World War I, when the Nazis were trying to disrupt the flow of crude oil to Canada and the Northeast.

Now there are close to 150 of the massive tanks, enough to make South Portland the second-busiest oil port on the East Coast.
