Steel Sucker Rods

Steel sucker rods, coupled end-to-end, channeled petroleum from well bottoms to the surface. Shown in a 1982 press photo, these 25 to 30-ft. sections were threaded and inventoried by Continental-Emsco, located Southeast of the Forest Ln.-Shiloh Rd. intersection. The firm shared a Katy rail siding with Garland’s neighboring Kraft Foods plant.
