What the Bolsheviki Did to It

Issue 14 and Volume 65.

What the Bolsheviki Did to It The copy of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING illustrated herewith started on its travels in September, 1917, the date of the issue being September 19, and it being the number containing the account of the 1917 convention of the New England Water Works Association, held at Hartford, Conn., on September 11, 12 and 13, 1917. It has just returned to the fold, marked across the address, “Al Inttente—Servizio Sospeso” as will be seen by the picture, the paper being addressed to the Neva Stearing Works, Petrograd, Russia, and judging from its battered condition, the unfortunate copy must have received some very severe usage at the hands of the Bolshevik government of Russia. It was probably lucky to be in condition to return at all, but it would seem that they deemed it too valuable to destroy.
