Historical Minute

Solidified Air
"The much talked of experiments of Professor Dewar,
the British scientist, in the production of solidified air,
appears to have stimulated the imaginative faculties
of a correspondent of an English trade journal to an
extent which must give his friends some anxiety. He
proposes the establishment of a new industry, which
is nothing more nor less than the commercial preparation of solid mountain air for use in cities. Works

might be started in Switzerland, new Zealand and other
salubrious hill countries for the production of solidified
Alpine air, which, sufficiently compressed and stored
in seamless steel tubes, could be exported to London,
for example, and let loose on the underground railway
and other parts of the British metropolis where such
a 'refresher' would be most appreciated. The idea is a
seductive one!"
