Description
Access to this collection is generously supported by Arcadia funds.
Wife of the general manager of the dry ice company Mrs. Carl M. Einhart was the inventor of the plant, all thanks to her curiosity over the smoking baby volcanos mired in the gray mud. The plant is located by the Salton Sea, one of the hottest places in America, and churns out product that is chilled at 109 degrees below zero.
Mrs. Burritt and Mr. Einhart lean down with the weight of the dry ice, being held up by a pair of forceps.
Photograph appears with the article, “Famous Bubbling Mud Pots Become Site of Niland's Busy Dry Ice Plant", Los Angeles Times, 01 June 1936: 12.
