PhotographÂ was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated December 5, 1961 partially reads, "There was a hiss of hair spray. A lighted match. A whoosh and the 'lady's' hair was on fire. The 'lady,' a mannequin with an indifferent, passive smile, was being used by Los Angeles Fire Department officials to demonstrate the danger of improperly used aerosol cans. 'The only people who get in trouble are those who don't read the regulations on the can,' said Fire Inspector Wallace Curry." Photograph caption reads, "A fine spray, a lighted match, and hair explodes - Curry demonstrates what might happen if aerosol can is used improperly."
