Alfred Nobel demonstrates Dynamite

On the 14th of July –

(yes, I know the Quatorze Juillet is Bastille Day, but we already did Marat yesterday, so I’ll do somthing that is not French today).

In 1867 Alfred Nobel gave a first demonstration of his new invention, intended to improve safety in mining operations: dynamite.
