1935 Print Aikins Nitroglycerin N-G Buggy Man Sulphuric Acid Cart Dynamite FZ2


This is an original 1935 halftone print of a man pushing a cart of chemicals down a wooden ramp. The caption writes, "Child of the acids nitric and sulphuric and of glycerin, here is nitroglycerin, the tetchy soul of dynamite, en route to distant quarters where it will be married to an absorbent 'dope.' The copper-tanked 'N-G Buggy' is limp-hosed, rubber-tired, and quietly handled, for nitroglycerin is easily shocked." Photography by Aikins.
