Punch,  49 (1865), 22.

A Very Safe Powder



News-Commentary, Drollery


Military Technology, Accidents

    Discusses a report of an explosion at the works of the Safety Powder Company, an event which, because it appears to have been 'harmless to the neighbourhood', suggests to Punch that the powder is of limited use and probably something that England exports to its enemies.
