The two women, wearing shin-length dresses of different patterns stand next to a large structure of gleaming tubes and pipes, each with one hand on a lever.
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.
Photograph appears with the ,"Famous Bubbling Mud Pots Become Site of Niland's Busy Dry Ice Plant", Los Angeles Times, 01 June 1936: 12.
