1974 Wenatchee Explosion Views

Here are his comments regarding his photos:

"At about 12:35 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 1974, a tremendous explosion ripped through Appleyard in South Wenatchee, followed by a huge ball of fire and a large mushroom cloud. The blast left a crater in the middle of the rail yard 80 feet long, 60 feet wide, and 35 feet deep, and all but leveled an area a half-mile-wide. I happened by a couple weeks later with an Instamatic camera."
