Through this mass of wreckage, officers continued their search today for additional bodies in the wake of the explosion that blew up the O'Connor Elctro-Plating Corp.'s plant. The terrific force of the blast can be seen in this view with ruins spread over a wide area. Buried by debris in the center of the picture is an automobile. Note the broken windows in the concrete building in background. Photo dated: February 21, 1947.
