Description: 

Located next to the train depot, this is the oil company's storage tank facility where Eck Snopes becomes the night watchman (37). The facility explodes with a "tremendous explosion, the loudest sound at one time that Jefferson ever heard, so loud that we all knew it couldn't be anything else but that German bomb come at last" (114). All that is recovered of Eck Snopes is the neck brace that is found "hanging in the telegraph wires about two hundred yards from where the tank had been" (116).
