Title:
Blasting Ice, Downriver (2)
Date:
02/21/1936
Description:
Looking down river, south, from Martin's Dock as ice is blasted on the Raritan River in New Brunswick, NJ. Seven figures watch the blast, with one of them operating the detonator on a sled. The fuse to the blast is visible. What may be a discarded coat lies on the ice. A power line tower is visible to the far right.

This image was taken from a different angle, more to the right, and the men have moved on the ice as has the discarded coat (from 2009.1.353).
