Budowa łapaczki w Borysławiu I
Dzięki pracy identyfikacyjnej p. Konrada Myślika wiemy, że to wybudowana w latach 1910-1912 w Borysławiu łapaczka, gromadząca ropę, która przenikała do Łoszeni (strumieniu). Na zdjęciach widać szalunek powstającej łapaczki, a w tle – zbiorniki na ropę.

In effect this is an earthen holding (gromadząca) tank for the oil that seeps through (przenika), so "trap" is also appropriate.
