“Black, Sivalls & Bryson, which specializes in tanks, valves and other oil field equipment, is becoming an important cog in the defense program in its recently expanded plant at Tenth Street and the Kansas City Southern tracks. Within the last few years it has greatly enlarged its warehouse, the roof of which bears the company name, and the machine shop beyond. Also just expanded is the two-story office building to the right.”
