Maplewood History: Another Explosion! This One in 1910


If you have been following this space, then you will know that my last two posts were about a terrific explosion that occurred on February 28, 1916.  Incredible as it may seem, there was another similar explosion that had occurred 5 years and a few months earlier on November 18, 1910.  Fool me twice…

I’m not sure if you will be able to read this on your cell phone screen so an enlarged version follows.

If you didn’t see the first post, you can link to it here.  If you didn’t see the followup post, you can link to it here.

From memory, I’m indebted to Luke Havel for this discovery.  Thanks Luke.
