    These fifteen photographs document advertising on New York City elevated train platforms and on subway cars. Each photo's location is given in the lower right side of the image.
    Since many of the advertisements are for theater or vaudeville shows for which Ward and Gow also did advertising, it is possible to date some of these images within a month's time. Most of the images are devoid of people.

    This collection, were originally included in the Pictorial Collections Hagley File reference prints as N60 (Nyalite) and P80 (Pulp Keg Mill), consists of photographs that document two separate activities.
    The first grouping shows an outdoor safety demonstration of Nyalite, a new explosive developed at the DuPont Experimental Station. This demonstration was probably conducted in the Hagley powder yards. Nyalite, an nitrostarch explosive compound developed in 1905, was designed for use in coal mines, and was marketed as a safer alternative to other mining explosives.
    The second group documents the pulp keg mill near Squirrel Run which, after the powder yards closed, was used for record storage by the DuPont Company. Currently, it is a Hagley Museum and Library property, the Hall of Records. Photographs show exterior and interior views.
