The Russian Rockefellers: the saga of the Nobel family and the Russian Oil Industry ... By Robert W. Tolf

"Zoroaster was open to inspection and imitation by anyone who made the trip to the Caspian or who discussed the ship with Ludvig and his engineers in Petersburg or with Almquist and his crew in Motala.In the years after 1878, there were dozens of British,Germans,Americans,Russians and Swedes on the scene studying the design and performance of the world's first tankers."

Another good reason to visit Baku in 1878.
